05 Feb RESEARCH – “Liver heterotopia associated with congenital diaphragmatic hernia: Two case reports and a review of the literature”
Rationale: Liver heterotopia associated with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a rare condition; to the best of our knowledge, only 17 cases have been reported to date. The histogenesis and clinicopathological features are largely unknown. We herein report 2 cases of liver heterotopia associated with CDH along with 17 cases described in the literature to shed light on their clinicopathological characteristics.
Patient concerns: Case 1 was a vaginally delivered male newborn who presented with respiratory distress immediately after birth. Case 2 was a female fetus who was found to have left-sided CDH during gestation.
