Meandering pulmonary vein (MPV) is a rare entity that can be associated with an additional cardiac and pulmonary venous variations, including left-to-right shunts. Clinicians should consider further workup with dedicated cardiac imaging to evaluate for associated cardiovascular abnormalities after an abnormal pulmonary vein draining is initially identified on routine computed tomography or echocardiogram. Pulmonary venous variations in MPV represent a spectrum of disorders, and no consistent nomenclature has been established.
