A case of adenocarcinoma of the head of the pancreas in a patient with situs viscerum inversus totalis, an association described for the third time in literature, is reported. The possible coexistence of malformations of transposed organs and the specular anatomosurgical situation requires particular attention in the diagnosis and preoperative evaluation as well as a careful reorientation of the surgical perspective and a correct surgical conduct.
