Heterotaxy syndrome is an uncommon disease, with an incidence ranging from 1 in 6000 to 1 in 20,000 live births.[1] This syndrome is characterized by major cardiac vascular malformations, congenital asplenia, polysplenia, and abnormal arrangement of the chest and abdominal organs. Radiological investigations such as radiographs, sonography, and computed tomography scan play a pivotal role in ascertaining the correlation between clinical symptoms of the patient and the extent of anatomical aberration in the form of thoracic or visceral “situs” abnormalities. The case in this report is a rare variant of heterotaxy, which cannot be stratified into any of the existing subsets for heterotaxy syndromes. The relevant investigations thereof and their relevant findings have been discussed in detail.
