Rose Marie Bentley of Oregon died at the age of 99, with only one doctor ever realizing that all her organs except her heart were misplaced, in a medical condition known as “situs invertus with levocardia.” The doctor who noticed that her liver, stomach and other abdominal organs were reversed right to left, entered the information into a report, which was never seen again until after her passing.

One in 22,000 people are born with this condition, many with heart defects, and their chance of reaching adulthood is one in 50 million.

The only chronic complaint Bentley suffered from was arthritis, her children said.
