Abstract

We report a case of cholecystolithiasis associated with situs inversus totalis (SIT) that had been successfully treated with a laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Although cholecystolithiasis associated with SIT is rare, trained surgeons who perform unusual surgical procedures, even if they have not experienced such a case, would perform laparoscopic cholecystectomy for cholecystolithiasis associated with SIT easily and safely.
