Abstract

Diaphragmatic hernias of Morgagni are anatomical defects in the anterior diaphragm that allow herniation of abdominal viscera into the thorax. They are the rarest of congenital diaphragmatic hernias and usually present in childhood with respiratory symptomatology. Adults are often asymptomatic or present with strangulation of visceral contents. We describe the case of a 60-year female presenting with chronic chest pain and diagnosed with a left sided Morgagni hernia, with stomach and greater omentum as its contents. She underwent thoracotomy repair of the hernia and the defect was repaired using polypropylene mesh.
