A ten year old male child having congenital heart disease admitted with recurrent history of respiratory infection. ECHO cardioraphy showed Mesocardia, congenitally corrected TGA, bidirectional VSD and severe pulmonary valve stenosis.On sonographic evaluation showed intra-abdominal mirror imaging of all the solid organs and vessels which was suggestive of a rare presentation of Sinus inverses with Mesocardia. Corrective surgery as pulmonary valve balloon dilation or valvuloplasty and vestricular septal repair has to be done to the child for better morbidity and reducing the mortality risk. This anomaly complicates the diagnosis and management of acute abdominal conditions like appendicitis, diverticulitis and biliary colic
