Abstract

Bochdalek hernia (BH) is a postero-lateral diaphragmatic congenital defect. Although most commonly diagnosed at birth, 0.17-6% of cases can also be seen in adults. A third of the cases may contain abdominal organs like small bowel, kidney or spleen. In our literature search we only found 3 reported cases of urinary obstruction secondary to herniation of the renal pelvis through a BH. Here we describe a rare case of upper urinary tract obstruction caused by a BH successfully treated by laparoscopic surgery in our center.
