Solitary round metallic foreign body in the RUQ. Dextrocardia, mirror image mainsteam bronchi and left hemidiaphragm higher than the right suggest situs inversus, in which case the foreign body is likely projected in the stomach.
No pneumoperitoneum, pneumothorax or pneumoediastinum.
Nice case of a swallowed coin without complication. The patient was known to have situs inversus.
