The pattern of tributaries to the azygos vein is highly variable (Luzsa G 1972 Röntgenanatomie des Gefäßsystems. Akadémiai Kiadó, Budapest; Rickenbacher et al. 1982 von Lanz/Wa\chsmuth Rücken. Springer, Berlin).

The supreme intercostal vein drains to the left brachiocephalic vein, the second and third right posterior intercostal veins to the right superior intercostal vein.
