Two patients presented to our centre with dextrocardia and complete situs inversus. The first a 35-year-old presented for the first time with respiratory symptoms but no cardiac symptoms and the second patient (14-year-old) presented with cardiac symptoms. Dextrocardia and situs inversus were confirmed by the chest radiograph, electrocardiograph, and abdominal ultrasound and computerised axial tomography in the two patients. Echocardiography established atrio-ventricular great arteries ventricular concordance and bicuspid aortic valve in the second patient that presented with cardiac symptoms.
