We report a case of right isomerism with a complex congenital heart disease associated with hiatus hernia in a 19-week-old fetus with relevant review of literature. This report highlights the importance of having a proper checklist for prenatal identification of extracardiac manifestations of isomerism syndromes. This will enable us to provide an effective family-centered counseling for perinatal management of these complex lesions. To our knowledge, prenatal sonographic detection of a sliding hiatal hernia in a fetus with right isomerism has not been reported previously.
