dc.description.abstractSitus inversus totalis (SIT) is a rare disease in which there is transposition of thoracic and abdominal organs. The symptoms of appendicitis in SIT are often confused with other intraperitoneal processes such as diverticulitis. We report the case of a 65-year-old, attended by emergency epigastric pain of 20 hours of the onset after a few hours left iliac fosse migrates associated with hyporexia. Diverticulitis is diagnosed in the first instance, and after the respective imaging tests is discarded for being relevant findings with situs inversus totalis and left poses appendicitis. Therefore, the realization of an adequate medical history and physical examination supported by imaging tests are important to keep in mind, appendicitis as part of the differential diagnosis, in order to avoid errors in diagnosis and treatment..

html.description.abstractSitus inversus totalis (SIT) es una enfermedad rara, en la cual existe transposición de los órganos torácicos y abdominales. Se presenta el caso de una paciente de 65 años de edad, que acude a emergencias por dolor epigástrico de 20 horas de evolución que luego de unas horas migra a fosa iliaca izquierda asociado a hiporexia. En primera instancia, se sospecha del diagnóstico de diverticulitis, luego de los exámenes imagenológicos respectivos es descartada por encontrarse hallazgos correspondientes con situs inversus totalis y se plantea apendicitis del lado izquierdo. Por tal motivo, la realización de una adecuada historia clínica y examen físico apoyado en pruebas imagenológicas resultan importantes para tener en cuenta a la apendicitis como parte del diagnóstico diferencial, con el fin de evitar errores en su diagnóstico per se y tratamiento.
