Hemiazygos vein drains venous blood from the left lower intercostal spaces and enters into azygos vein usually at the level of T8 vertebra. Despite the fact that venous variations are more common, in our work we describe a rare variation of the hemiazygos vein caused probably by the persistence of the embryonic connections.
