Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Associated With Uncommon Abnormalities
Congenital diaphragmatic hernia is a poor formation of the diaphragm characterized by the presence of an intestinal malrotation, It is related to abnormal position of the intestine in the thorax. This case report a stillborn at 32 weeks, that was observe anatomical abnormalities associated with congenital diaphragmatic hernia, which occurred in the left antero-posterior region, such as intestinal malrotation, hepatomegaly and nephromegaly, with the presence of a hernial ring that occupied 80 % of the left side of the diaphragm, besides a hypertrophied heart, deviated to the right, bilateral pulmonary hypotrophy. This case illustrates a rare case of diaphragmatic hernia with intestinal changes of clinical and surgical importance.
