N2 - Heterotaxy syndromes, otherwise laterality defects, are variations from anatomic left-right asymmetry. Situs inversus is the complete reversal of the normal situs, still situs ambiguus is the randomisation of the normal organ position. Situs ambiguus may be manifested as asplenia or polysplenia syndrome. Normal situs and both types of the heterotaxy syndromes may appear among some affected families, whereas the different situs are rarely expressed in the same family.
