Abstract

The classification of hiatal hernia is made by the position of the gastroesophageal junction. Although sliding hiatal hernia (type 1) is the most common type of hiatal hernia, it is very uncommon to be found in early infancy because it is usually symptom free. We report a case of type 1 hiatal hernia of newborn infant who had diagnosed by simple chest radiography taken because of transient tachypnea of the newborn.
