Abstract
We herein report a very rare case of adult right-sided Bochdalek hernia accompanied with hepatic hypoplasia and inguinal hernia. A 29-year-old man was admitted with right-sided pneumothorax. A computed tomography was performed and revealed large right sided Bochdalek hernia with hepatic hypoplasia. Under thoracolaparotomy, the defect was closed with Gore-Tex soft tissue patch. After the operation, left-sided inguinal hernia was found. However, it turned out that it had been present during infancy and spontaneously resolved during adolescence. This is the first report of right-sided Bochdalek hernia with hepatic hypoplasia and inguinal hernia in an adult. © The Korean Society for Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery. 2012.
