Abstract

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a disorder of the development of the lung and diaphragm and is associated with pulmonary hypoplasia and pulmonary hypertension. Denys-Drash syndrome (DDS) is a well-known syndrome caused by several different germline mutations in the WT1-gene. CDH in DDS is rare. We present the third case of CDH with clinical features of DDS and the same, rare Arg366His mutation in the WT1-gene, as reported in the other two known cases. This report provides additional evidence that WT1 mutations can result in diaphragmatic hernia.
