Abstract
Diaphragmatic hernias presenting during pregnancy or in the puerperium are very rare. The diagnosis is often delayed because the presenting symptoms of nausea, vomiting and mild abdominal pain are commonly seen in the normal antenatal or postpartum women. The most common etiology of diaphragmatic hernia in pregnancy is trauma and spontaneous diaphragmatic hernia is rare. We report a case of maternal diaphragmatic hernia in pregnancy with a brief review of literatures.
Key Words: Maternal diaphragmatic hernia, Pregnancy
