Situs ambiguous is the placement of vessels and organs in the thoracoabdominal space that are anatomically located outside its normal position in a certain order. This condition is a broad definition that includes many variations. In this case report, we reported a patient with Situs ambiguus with an abnormal hepatic vein who was diagnosed incidentally during medical imaging (computed tomography, sonography and MRI study).

KEY WORDS: Situs ambiguous; Left isomerism; Hepatic vein anomaly.
