The breadth of heterotaxy syndromes is a topic commonly covered in the education of radiology providers, however is often neglected in graduate medical education and in the scope of general pediatric practice. Although some heterotaxy syndromes are discovered incidentally, others can lead to severe morbidity and mortality secondary to congenital abnormalities including heart defects and intestinal malrotation. Early recognition of heterotaxy syndromes associated with severe congenital defects such as right-sided isomerism can help to reduce negative patient outcomes and lead to appropriate referral from an outpatient basis to the appropriate medical subspecialists. Conversely, knowledge of heterotaxy syndromes and associated clinical manifestations can aid in identifying which syndromes which are incidental and avoid further imaging work up or costly examinations for patients when not indicated. This exhibit aims to educate providers about the different classifications of heterotaxy syndromes with a focus on clinical features and recommended follow-up based on multidisciplinary guidelines.
