Abstract

Congenital diaphragmatic eventration is defined as an abnormal elevation of the diaphragm resulting from developmental abnormality of muscle fibers during gestation. Differentiation between congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) and eventration is very difficult but important for perinatal management and prognosis, because CDH is associated with higher perinatal and neonatal mortality. We describe a case that was initially diagnosed by prenatal sonography as a right CDH and later confirmed as a congenital diaphragmatic eventration after the delivery with a brief review of the literatures.
