Introduction: Levocardia with situs inversus, a rare congenital disorder, is usually associated with severe cyanotic congenital heart disease. Thus these patients have adverse prognosis. Case Report: A 2-day-old neonate with mild central cyanosis was admitted to Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Prenatal sonographies were normal. Physical exam was normal except for 2/6 heart murmur in left sternal border and mild central cyanosis. Chest x-ray revealed normal placed heart, gastric gas bobble at the right and shadow of liver at the left side. Conclusion: Isolated levocardia is a rare anomaly. It could be fatal due to associated congenital heart disease. Early or prenatal diagnosis of this anomaly is important in improving prognosis of the patients.
