Left-sided acute appendicitis is a rare condition that occurs most frequently in patients with congenital abnormalities. It can be a surgical emergency and a diagnostic challenge for clinicians. We present a case of acute appendicitis in a patient with situs inversus totalis and intestinal malrotation.
