Situs inversus is a rare congenital disorder characterized by mirror image of the internal organs’ arrangements. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy in such patient is considered challenging. In this paper, we present a 64-year-old female which is known to have situs inversus. She underwent uneventful laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Technical difficulty is an obstacle in these patients and modification of the surgical steps will facilitate the operation.
