Case description

Video case: situs inversus totalis is a rare condition affecting intra abdominal and intra thoracic organs. Situs inversus usually remains asymptomatic. Life expectancy is normal in the absence of rare cardiac abnormalities. Left sided gallbladder can occur even without situs inversus totalis. Cholelithiasis is not more common in patients with situs inversus than the general population. However, these patients may pose a diagnostic difficulty. An ultrasound scan can confirm the presence of gallstones and the left-sided gallbladder.
