Situs inversus is also known as situs transversus or oppositus and is a congenital condition. In this condition, the major visceral organs are observed to be reversed or mirrored from their normal position. Symptomatic cholelithiasis in a patient of situs inversus can give rise to diagnostic dilemma and calls for modification of the surgeon's operative approach. Owing to the rarity of the condition, here, we report a case of laparoscopic cholecystectomy in a patient of situs inversus at Regional Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS). Though operative time was slightly prolonged and there were minor orientation difficulties, intra-operative and post-operative periods were uneventful and there is no report of complication till date.
