A late preterm male infant was admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit with an asymmetric chest wall and a herniating mass through the left second intercostal space on crying. On auscultation, the heart sounds were audible on the right side of the chest. Systemic examination was otherwise unremarkable. A roentgenogram of the chest revealed dextro position of heart and hyperlucent left lung fields. Echocardiogram showed heart on the right with a structurally normal heart. A clinical diagnosis of Poland's syndrome was made based on the hypoplasia of the left pectoral muscles, ribs and nipple, dextroposition of heart and lung herniation. His clinical course was uneventful and doing remarkably well on follow up.
