Intrathoracic kidney is a rare developmental anomaly representing <5% of all ectopic kidneys. Here, we present a case of a 60-year-old woman who presented with nonspecific abdominal pain for two years, on and off in nature. She was investigated and found to have intrathoracic kidney within Bochdalek hernia. The idea of presenting the case is to have familiarity with this rare condition and keep a high index of suspicion to diagnose the same.
