Congenital „sliding“ hiatal hernia is the herniation of the stomach to posterior mediastinum through esophageal hiatus. Hiatal hernia is rarely seen in infancy. The mode of presentation in the neonatal period can be confused with the possibility of other chest pathologies. The upper gastrointestinal tract contrast study is diagnostic in this disease. Type I mostly does not show clinical symptoms but sometimes it can accompany vomiting, respiratory symptoms because of regurgitation and delayed growth. The case in this our study is 6 month-old-boy patient, diagnosed as type I. The gastric fundus was herniated to the right thorax on the chest x-ray.
