The purpose of this image is to illustrate a Bochdalek hernia diagnosis in a 39-year-old female patient treated on an emergency basis by means of CT-scan and following perioperative observation. Treatment consisted in initial laparoscopy that due to irreducible bowel incarceration was converted into hernia repair surgery through simple suture and thoracic drainage.
