Dextrocardia with polysplenia is one of a large spectrum of situs anomalies. In most cases, there are associated cardiovascular abnormalities. We report the case of a patient with dextrocardia, polysplenia, situs ambiguous, and interruption of the inferior vena cava, with an azygos vein continuation. He underwent surgery to replace the aortic valve and the ascending aorta, and to insert a double coronary artery bypass graft.
