Abstract

Background: Diaphragmatic hernias are rare in adults and extremely rare during pregnancy when diagnosis is difficult because of the nonspecific symptoms. However, delays in diagnosis can be fatal. Case Report: We report the successful repair of a Bochdalek hernia in a woman presenting with emesis and epigastric pain at 29 weeks of gestation. A diaphragmatic hernia complicated by rupture of the stomach was diagnosed by computed tomography. A cesarean section was performed, followed by surgical repair of the diaphragmatic defect and stomach perforation.
