Situs inversus totalis is a condition where visceral and thoracic organs are transposed from their normal anatomic position to the opposite and posed as mirror image. It is also a rare congenital condition. It may present some significant difficulty in diagnosing acute abdomen and in management of anesthesia also.Anesthesiologists must have a thorough knowledge regarding this condition and its associated abnormalities to conduct smooth anesthetic management. Here we are reporting three cases of situs inversus totalis posted for laparoscopic cholecystectomy under general anesthesia which went uneventful.
