This case is reported because of its interesting electro-cardiographic findings. A thorough search of the literature reveals no previous similar case reported. There are many cases reported in the literature of complete situs transversus with electrocardiographic depictions of dextrocardia. Some of them are associated with pathologic conditions of the heart, for the most part, congenital anomalies. Other case reports are of situs transversus associated with diseases other than those of the heart.
A discussion of complete situs transversus and auricular fibrillation and flutter will not be taken up here, having been thoroughly discussed in other reports in the literature.
