Transposition of the viscera, although not a rare condition, is interesting. Reports of such cases serve a very useful purpose of putting the physician on guard for these anomalies.

This case came under my observation through the courtesy of Dr. Samuel Roth, of Newark, and holds absolutely true to type as proven by physical findings, electrocardiograms, and X-ray studies.
History: L. F., aged 35, well developed, overnourished white male, was seen by me on May 30, 1928, with
