Poland syndrome (PS) is right sided in 75 percent of cases. Only 10 percent are associated with dextrocardia. It is usually detected late for the milder nature of the condition. Only in severe cases it comes to attention during neonatal period. Left sided Poland syndrome with dextrocardia is extremely rare. To the best of our knowledge this is the first case of left sided type 3 Poland syndrome with dextrocardia diagnosed at birth with chest wall getting sucked in and bulging out during inspiration and expiration respectively.
