[Bochdalek's hernia in adults].
Gac Med Mex. 2003 Jan-Feb; 139(1):69-72.GM

Abstract

Bochdalek hernia is a congenital defect of the posterolateral region of the diaphragm, usually on the left side, and is most often seen in infants, rare in the adult. In a bibliographical review of the literature we found 100 cases reported of Bochdalek hernia in the adult. We present the case of a 52 year old man with Bochdalek hernia, he presented gastric symptoms of upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Upper gastrointestinal barium study showed the stomach inside the thoracic cavity, endoscopy showed ischemical changes in gastric mucosa The surgical repair was done through left thoracotomy without surgical complications, four years later the patient is asymptomatic.
