Functional information regarding fluid movement within the body can be derived by magnetic resonance methods. Some of the observations were overlooked in early days of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) application. This presentation illustrates an unique, intra-hepatic haemodynamic phenomenon, demonstrated by magnetic resonance imaging, in a case of infra-cardiac Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Connection (TAPVC) Demonstration of such phenomena is unreported even after widespread use of cardiac MRI, although patho-physiology of such a phenomenon is expected in TAPVC. Brief explanation and possible basis of such observation in the context of current knowledge is discussed.
