We present the case of a 63-year-old woman with heterotaxy syndrome and polysplenia who presented with clinical signs and symptoms of recurrent acute pancreatitis in which the biliary origin had been seen in the most recent episode.

This syndrome is rare in adult patients because it is associated with congenital heart defects. It is important to know the visceral anomalies that are common in this syndrome to avoid confusing them with pathological processes.
