Dr. Yash Patel [2] | Dr. Sandeep Kansal [3] | Dr. Jay Chokshi

Abstract: We aimed to review the publications on the diagnosis of diaphragmatic eventration and report on the clinical presentation and surgical treatment of a male patient aged 29 years. The present case, though quite infrequent. The clinical features included intermittent dyspnea and abdominal pain for 3 months. The left hemithorax presented invasion of fundus of stomach and part of left lobe of liver. The treatment approach was laparoscopic diaphragmatic plication. The outcome was satisfactory. Eventration of diaphragm represents a clinical and diagnostic challenge; clinicians, radiologists and surgeons must be alert with a high degree of suspicion in order to correlate symptoms and imaging findings and understand the etiopathogenesis. In addition, they should plan an adequate and individualized surgical repair making use, as far as possible, of the minimally invasive procedures that are currently used.
