Abstract

We present a case of a 7-week-old infant who presented with nonspecific respiratory symptoms that quickly progressed to sudden cardiac arrest as a consequence of late-onset diaphragmatic hernia and intestinal strangulation. Unless discovered as an incidental finding, late-onset diaphragmatic hernia should be considered a surgical emergency.
