Abstract

Acute cholecystitis with situs inversus totalis is a rare condition. Recently, laparoscopic cholecystectomy is the most preferred method for cholecystitis treatment. Surgeries must be performed with care due to the change in positions of organs and possible anomalies during the operations. It is beneficial to take some technical measures to avoid complications. Here, we present a case of acute cholecystitis with situs inversus totalis and its treatment with emergency laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
