Abstract

Morgagni hernia is the rarest form of congenital diaphragmatic hernia and is commonly found either in the first few hours of life or in antenatal period. It is less common in adult and is mostly diagnosed incidentally in an asymptomatic patient. Symptomatic adult cases are even rarer with a wide variety of symptoms. Here we report a patient with a one year history of chronic recurrent cough and dyspnea, who had been misdiagnosed as recurrent pneumonia before being recognized and treated as Morgagni hernia.

Keywords: Adult; misdiagnosis; morgagni hernias.
