Dr. Gill Shweta | Dr. Saraswat Bharti | Dr. Rathi Mahendra


Abstract: Introduction: Morgagani hernia is the rarest of all congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) (4%-5% of cases), presenting mostly in childhood. Only 12 symptomatic adult cases of CDH have been reported. Adult diaphragmatic hernias are usually due to trauma or iatrogenic injury. Case report: We present a case of non traumatic non iatrogenic right side morgagni hernia in a 50 year old female who came with complains of pain abdomen and vomiting. Pt was hemodynamically stable with no respiratory distress. Abdomen was distended. On CECT, 3cm defect noted on right side of diaphragm with colon herniating resulting in SAIO with vascular compromise. Emergency laparotomy was done followed by primary repair of defect and ICD placement. Conclusion: This case illustrates the prompt and accurate diagnosis of diaphragmatic hernia while assessing patients with recurrent abdominal pain, pulmonary infections and vomiting. Timely intervention allows repair to be done before development of morbid complications.
