Achalasia is a rare esophageal motility disorder that has an incidence of 1 in 100,000 Americans. The predominant symptom is dysphagia. Three distinct subtypes are described based on high resolution manometry. A surgical or endoscopic myotomy is the treatment of choice. Situs Inversus of abdominal and thoracic vicera has a reported incidence of 1 in 10,000 live births, but the incidence of isolated situs inversus of the liver is probably unknown. We present a patient with type II achalasia with coexistent situs inversus of the liver.
