Abstract

Situs inversus totalis is the mirror-image of normal position of the thoracic and abdominal viscera. It may be detected incidentally when the patient seek medical attention for other medical illness. From medico-legal points of view, this rare disorder is important in many ways for a junior physician to prevent a big mishap, especially surgical. Here, we report a case, who was 55- year-old, seeking medical attention for infective exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease incidentally diagnosed as a case of situs inversus totalis.
