Fatal Outcome in a Right Bochdalek Hernia with Renal Ectopia Diagnosed in Adulthood
Published: 1 January 2021
Abstract: Diaphragmatic hernias may be acquired or congenital. Among congenital hernias, the most common is Bochdalek hernia and eight out of ten Bochdalek hernias occur on the left side. They are usually diagnosed in the paediatric age group, and it is exceedingly rare for the diagnosis to be established in adulthood. Renal ectopy associated with a Bochdalek hernia is extremely rare, and very few cases are reported worldwide. We are reporting a case of a 73-year-old male patient with a right-sided Bochdalek hernia and renal ectopy. In this case, promp diagnosis and treatment could help to reduce the high risk of death in this kind of patients.
