    Intrapericardial herniation of liver is a rare form of diaphragmatic hernia. We report a 30-hour old baby with right congenital anterior diaphragmatic hernia masquerading as congenital pneumonia with cardiomegaly. It is prudent to consider congenial anterior diaphragmatic hernia in any newborn...

    Intrapericardial diaphragmatic hernias are very uncommon and are most typically caused by high-force blunt trauma. Other iatrogenic causes such as prior surgical formation of a pericardial window have been described, but are exceedingly rare. We present a case of an intrapericardial...

    Diaphragm rupture is associated with approximately 5% of blunt abdominal trauma. However, rupture of the central tendon of the diaphragm leading to an intrapericardial diaphragmatic hernia is very rare, with less than 100 cases reported in the world literature. All previously reported cases have...

    Congenital intrapericardial diaphragmatic hernia with omphalocele is very rare. Few cases have been reported in the literature. The embryologic mechanism of this is considered to be abnormal development of the ventral mesoderm at 3-4 weeks after conception. Sometimes, omphalocele is repaired,...

    Herniation of intra-abdominal contents into the pericardial cavity is rare. We describe one such case occurring after creation of a pericardioperitoneal window for drainage of a pericardial effusion. The diagnosis of an intrapericardial hernia should be considered in patients presenting with...

    Diaphragmatic injuries are relatively rare and result from either blunt or penetrating trauma. Intrapericardial diaphragmatic hernia (IPDH) hernia is a rare complication of diaphragmatic rupture, occurring in less than 1% of cases of diaphragmatic hernias (DH). IPDH presentation can range from...
