Isolated left SVC entering the right atrium via the coronary sinus. Note no "normal" right-sided SVC. Azygos vein is also left-sided entering the SVC above the right main bronchus (arrows).
Most left-sided SVC cases have a duplicated SVC on the right and left. It is unusual to have only a left sided SVC and I note that the azygos vein is also on the right of the aorta entering the SVC on the right above the right bronchus (rather than the left).
