Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is associated with high early mortality. However, advances in newborn care have led to improved survival into adolescence and early adulthood. We report a 17-year-old adolescent boy with recurrent small bowel obstruction after CDH repair at 2 days of age. Emergency physicians should be aware of late complications after neonatal CDH repair.
