ABSTRACT

Eventration of the diaphragm, congenital or acquired, represents a rare condition (1 to 10,000 live births), in which the dome of the diaphragm is abnormally elevated, due to an excessive amount of fibro-elastic diaphragmatic tissue.

We present the case of a 3 years old boy with recurrent chest infections and apparent “dextrocardia”, both caused by a left eventration of the diaphragm, successfully treated by plication.

Keywords: Eventration of the diaphragm, respiratory infections, plication
