Abstract

We present the case of a 5-month-old patient presenting with pleural migration of ventriculo-peritoneal shunt catheter who returned 2 months later with respiratory distress. Ultimately, the diagnosis of a Morgagni hernia was made. This diagnosis, though rare, should be entertained in certain clinical settings.

Keywords: Congenital hernia; Morgagni hernia; Shunt malfunction; Ventriculo-peritoneal shunt migration.
