Abstract

This article reports a case of non-small cell lung cancer in a 74-year-old man with visceral total inversion. The epidemiology and main anatomical differences present in this rare syndrome, as well as basic information on lung cancer, are explored. We present diagnostic procedures and their results and describe the surgical technique of lung cancer treatment performed in this rare case. The perioperative period and the histopathological findings are analysed. Finally, references to similar cases found in worldwide literature are discussed.
