Case of Bochdalek hernia in the elderly: success with laparotomy.
Int Surg. 2009 Oct-Dec; 94(4):335-8.IS

Abstract

Bochdalek hernia is usually diagnosed in pediatric patients and not in the elderly. In adults, there are some cases resulting in misdiagnosis of pneumonia, pleural effusion, congenital bulla, and pneumothorax by chest roentgenogram. We present here a rare case of Bochdalek hernia in an elderly patient who suffered from sudden back pain and had the hernia repaired with laparotomy.
