Background and AimsSitus inversus is a rare congenital abnormality involving partial or complete transposition of the thoracic or abdominal viscera. In situs inversus totalis, both the thoracic and abdominal viscera are transposed. The incidence of this condition is 0.01% to 0.02%. Bronchopulmonary sequestration (BPS) is a rare congenital abnormality of the respiratory tract with an incidence of 0.15% to 1.80%. Intralobar sequestration is uncommonly associated with congenital anomalies.
