A 49-year-old female presented with pneumonia. On examination, heart sounds were heard on the right side of the chest, resulting in an initial impression of dextrocardia. Chest X-ray (Fig. 1Fig. 1) and echocardiography demonstrated dextro-position of the heart with no associated congenital anomalies. Subsequently, computed tomography of the chest was performed, revealing an absence of a right lung parenchyma with abrupt termination of right main bronchus after bifurcation of the carina, and a shift of the heart to the right side as shown in Fig. 2Fig. 2. No other congenital anomalies were detected.
