    ABSTRACT: The case of a 40-year-old male with dextrocardia who presented with ST Elevated Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) is reported. Coronary angiogram was performed after due manipulation and then successful primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of Left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery was done. His 9 months follow up primary PCI in a patient with angiogram revealed patent stent in proximal LAD. There are very few published case reports of this rare congenital anomaly addressing technical details of successful primary PCI with dextrocardia.
