Partial Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Connection (PAPVC) is a rare congenital abnormality characterized by drainage of one or more pulmonary veins to the right atrium or to one of the systemic veins. This pathology has low prevalence, although it is probably underestimated and is rarely diagnosed in adults.

We reported a rare case of hemoptysis in adult associated to isolated partial anomalous pulmonary venous return. He is a patient of 49 years-old man who had a partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection (PAPVC) from the right upper lobe to the superior vena cava without other congenital heart disease. A right bilobectomy (superior and middle lobe) was performed for the treatment for hemoptysis and PAPVC. The patient has an uneventful postoperative recovery and remained well at follow-up 8 months after surgery.
