A 22-year-old man presented with fever of 1-month duration. He was a known case of dextrocardia and situs inversus from childhood. Physical examination revealed a systolic ejection murmur at the right sternal border and right precordium, cyanosis and clubbing, an ejection systolic murmur at the second right intercostal space, and a holosystolic murmur at the right apex. On transthoracic echocardiography, the left atrium was located on the right side of the right atrium. All the images were obtained from the right precordium, with the patient lying in the right lateral decubitus position.
