Situs ambiguous is a rare anomaly that is characterised by abnormal arrangement of abdominal organs with congenital heart diseases. Patients rarely survive beyond first decade of life as this anomaly generally coexists with cyanotic heart diseases. The correct recogniation and characterisation of cases is important for planning surgical, radiologic and endoscoping interventions. In this case we present an incidentally diagnosed case with midline located liver, multiple spleens and stomach in the right upper quadrant, interruptured inferior vena cava with azygos continuation. The heart was left sided and there was no sign of congenital cardiac anomaly. Hereby we present this case as it was found incidentally at adult age and there was no accompanying congenital heart anomaly.

Keywords: Multiple spleens, situs ambiguous
