AO Talabi, OA Sowande, AG Tanimola, O Adejuyigbe

Abstract


Situs inversus in association with duodenal atresia is very rare. A high index of suspicion coupled with appropriate evaluation is necessary for diagnosis and operative planning. We report a case of a 5-day-old who presented with duodenal atresia associated with polysplenia and situs inversus with a review of the medical literature.

Key words: Situs inversus, duodenal atresia
