Left sided superior vena cava (SVC) is an uncommon anomaly noted in the general population. It adds complexity to the procedure, when attempting to place pacing or defibrillator devices into the heart. Here we report a case where the leads were placed through the left sided SVC into the right sided chambers giving an interesting X-ray appearance.
