Abstract

We report CT images of an asymptomatic, adult case of polysplenia syndrome associated with semiannular pancreas, intestinal malrotation, preduodenal portal vein, and agenesis of the upper abdominal segment of the inferior vena cava with azygous continuation. This rare combination of abdominal abnormalities would be mainly caused by congenital malrotation of lower abdominal organs.
