Left-Sided Liver and Right Sided Polysplenia: A 77-Year-Old Patient With Hetrotaxy Syndrome
Hetrotaxy syndrome is defined as an abnormality where the internal thoraco-abdominal organs demonstrate abnormal arrangement across the left-right axis of the body. Although it is a known condition among physicians taking care of pediatric patients, it is rarely seen in adult day-to-day medicine and most physicians involved in care of adult patients are unaware of it. It is important to recognize this anomaly based on clinical findings,due to its reported association with various medical conditions. We report a case of a 77-year-old patient diagnosed with Hetrotaxy syndrome.
