Synchronous ipsilateral Bochdalek and Morgagni diaphragmatic hernias: a case report.

Author information

  • 1University of California, San Francisco, CA 94143, USA.


The etiology of congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is unknown. Phenotypic patterns of CDH defects provide clues about normal diaphragm development and the pathophysiology of CDH. We report a case of a patient who was diagnosed with CDH postnatally and was found on imaging to have simultaneous Bochdalek and Morgagni hernias on the right side. During the operative repair of these defects, an additional left-sided Morgagni-type defect was also found. To the best of our knowledge, this form of CDH has not been previously reported.
