Abstract

Situs abnormality in fetus is rare. Most of the time an abnormal situs is associated with a structural cardiac
abnormality and abnormal arrangement of lungs and abdominal viscera. Cardiac situs almost always
correlates with visceral situs. Here we report a fetus with reversed abdominal situs in presence of normal
cardiac situs, connection and function with successful delivery at term. This is first report of such anomaly
in fetus from India.

Keywords: Isolated levocardia.
