Incarcerated Bochdalek hernia in an adult.
J Coll Physicians Surg Pak. 2008 Apr; 18(4):239-41.JC

Abstract

Congenital posterolateral diaphragmatic hernia (Bochdalek hernia) usually presents in the neonatal period with life-threatening cardiorespiratory distress. However, on rare occasion, Bochdalek hernias may remain silent until adulthood and present as a surgical emergency. This report describes a young man with acute abdominal pain and incarceration of the colon. Clinicians should keep this rare diagnosis in mind when evaluating an adult patient with acute abdominal pain for early diagnosis and improved outcome.
