Abstract :

Dextrocardia is a clinical condition in which heart is located on the right side of the chest cavity. Dextroversion is a result of early interruption of normal embryological development and therefore, rarely occurs without other cardiac and noncardiac anomalies. Isolated dextrocardia is a benign condition. It can often be associated with other congenital anomalies which can lead to failure to thrive, breathing difficulties, recurrent infections in new borns and neonates. It presents in situs solitus and situs inversus. Among them Dextrocardia with situs solitus is very rare. We are here presenting a case of dextrocardia with situs solitus.
