Brain in Situs Inversus may also be reversed-Interesting
While reporting a case of situs inversus, came across this very interesting note in Anat Embryol (Berl). 2003 Feb;206(3):199-202. Epub 2003 Jan 18 titled "Intracranial anatomic asymmetry in situs inversus totalis". According to the authors- "They examined the gross anatomy of an elderly cadaveric female for a possible "situs inversus" of the intracranial contents. This study has found that many structures commonly dominant on one side in the intracranial compartment were reversed in this specimen. These findings support the concept that a reversal of more commonly found intracranial anatomy may occur in situs inversus totalis, and this should alert the clinician performing invasive procedures in this population. "
