A term infant with antenatal diagnosis of visceral heterotaxy presented on the third day of life with bilious vomiting and rectal bleeding. Abdominal radiograph (Figure 1) and upper gastrointestinal contrast study (Figure 2) demonstrated intestinal malrotation with suspicion of midgut volvulus. Findings were confirmed at laparotomy where a right-sided stomach was seen, with the duodeno-jejunal flexure lying to the left and volvulus of the midgut. The liver was on the left side of the abdomen and the spleen in the midline with the hilum facing left. Two additional splenunculi (polysplenia) were found. A Ladd's procedure with inversion appendicectomy was performed.
