Situs inversus totalis with dextrocardia was detected incidentally in a 60-year-old cadaver in routine dissection kept for undergraduate medical students. It was found that some of visceral organs such as stomach and spleen were located on right side. Liver and gallbladder on left. Both right lung and left lung were bilobed. Heart was flattened directed to right with transposition of great vessels. The report showed that dextrocardia with situs inversus existing in one in ten thousand population. Complete situs inversus may form part of multiple malformational syndromes such as Kartagener syndrome with autosomal recessive transmission, which represent 20-25% cases. Situs inversus is generally autosomal recessive condition although it can be X-linked or found in identical mirror twins.
