Abstract

Situs inversus is an uncommon congenital abnormality with mirror-image viscera. Diagnosing and treating cholelithiasis in these patients is difficult. These instances need a modified laparoscopic cholecystectomy. A 45-year-old guy with Situs Inversus and Cholelithiasis was discovered on ultrasonography abdomen. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy went well. In individuals with cholelithiasis, changes in SIT might delay identification and treatment by altering the location of symptoms. It is safe to do laparoscopic cholecystectomy on these people. However, it is a technically difficult process that often necessitates adjustments to the approach.
