Abstract

Situs inversus totalis (SIT) is a rare clinical entity which is characterized by a complete reverse anatomy of the thoracic cage and abdomen. There are a few reports of patients with SIT and lung cancer. The number of the cases that have been treated surgically is also very small. We report a case of an 80 years old patient who underwent left lower lobectomy after staging with uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) and mediastinoscopy.

KEYWORDS:

Situs inversus totalis (SIT); lobectomy; non-small cell lung cancer; uniportal VATS; video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS)
