Abstract

Heterotaxy syndrome (HTS) is an abnormality where the internal thoraco-abdominal organs are arranged abnormally across the left-right axis of the body. Literature review has reported that it is a very rare condition and has complex cardiac and extracardiac manifestations which requires early surgical intervention. A very rare case report of HTS in a preterm newborn with  an associated  duodenal atresia is presented with a review of literature.
