Abstract

I report a patient who presented with long standing dyspnea without physical signs of congestive heart failure and finally diagnosed to have situs inversus totalis with aortopulmonary window. Situs inversus totalis refers to a mirror image reversal of the normal position of the internal organs. The recognition of concomitant congenital anomalies such as in the heart or other organs is extremely important as it may disturb surgical procedures for concomitant diseases. This is a very rare condition and a coexisting aortopulmonary window was not described before to the best of my knowledge.
