ABSTRACT


Situs inversustotalis is a rare autosomal recessive anomaly characterized by transposition of organs to the opposite site of the body. Its prevalance varies from 0.03% to 0.04%. The frequency of cholelithiasis in patients with situs inversus is similar to that in the general population. We performed cholecystectomy in a 52 years symptomatic female by left mini-paramedian incision who was unfit for laproscopic cholecystectomy due to associated co-morbid conditions. Diagnosis and treatment of cholelithiasis in such cases pose a challenge to the operating surgeon because of atypical clinical picture and due to the contralateral disposition of the visceral organs.

Keywords: Cholecystitis, Cholecystectomy, Cholilithiasis, Situs inversustotalis
