[congenital diaphragmatic hernia]

Morgagni diaphragmatic hernia is a birth defect whose presentation in adults is rare. Diagnosis is usually made as an incidental finding through image studies; infrequently, patients may present with symptoms such as dyspnea or retrosternal pain. Open surgical repair has been the preferred management method of symptomatic presentation. In this paper we present the case of a 42 year-old-male with symptoms of retrosternal pain and dyspnea. Diaphragmatic hernia diagnosis was made by CT and it was managed by laparoscopic repair of the diaphragmatic hernia.
