Dextrocardia with situs inversus is a rare condition. Situs inversus with dextrocardia is also called as "situs inversus totalis". Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) views in dextrocardia patient are not discussed in the literature. The cardiac position and the cardiac chambers are mirror image of the normal anatomy. Because of this positional change, certain TEE probe and multiplane angle manipulations are required to obtain the recommended views.
