Abstract

Congenital diaphragmatic hernias are a relatively common anomaly that can present with significant respiratory morbidity and mortality. We report on a case of an aortic-hiatal gastric hernia that initially presented with repeated episodes of respiratory distress, which was diagnosed as asthma. The diagnosis of a diaphragmatic hernia was made at 18 months of age. In the operating room, it was noted that it was an aortic hiatal hernia, which was surgically repaired. Subsequently, there has been improvement in daily respiratory symptoms.
