Myocardial infarction in a patient having Dextrocardia with situs inversus

Ujala Kausar, Asma Parveen.

Abstract
Dextrocardia with situs inversus is a rare condition in which the major visceral organs are flipped from their normal positions. It becomes difficult to correctly interpret the territory for myocardial infarction on a standard electrocardiogram (ECG) if the diagnosis of dextrocardia is not known. Therefore findings need to be clearly identified, and all limb and precordial leads must be reversed to unveil the ECG changes.

Here is a case of a patient having dextrocardia with situs inversus who presented to the emergency department with symptoms of myocardial infarction and acute left ventricular failure which was correctly identified on a right-sided ECG.

Key words: Dextrocardia, Situs Inversus
