Rare Case of Nontraumatic Right Sided Bochdalek Hernia in Adult: A Case Report
Dr. Parth Katariya | Dr. Bhavesh V. Vaishnani 
Abstract: Understanding and acknowledging that some diaphragmatic hernias may remain clinically silent till adulthood when they present as life-threatening surgical emergency. The percentage of right-sided spontaneous diaphragmatic hernias reported is very small compared with those found on the left side and that too in the absence of trauma is very rare in adults. Owing to their rarity and varied presentation, these hernias can pose a diagnostic challenge. A sceptical approach, combined with thorough physical examination and the correct interpretation of the chest X-ray, are very important in diagnosis. In light of this information, here we review a case of 75-year-old female with incidentally detected right sided nontraumatic bochdalek hernia who presented with abdominal pain and vomiting and was successfully repaired by laparotomy.
