SALAS, Gisela et al. Late diagnosis bilateral congenital diaphragmatic hernia: a case report. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2016, vol.114, n.1, pp.e29-e31. ISSN 0325-0075.

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a rare malformation, usually unilateral and left sided. Bilateral CDH (B-CDH) represents 1% of all CDH. Mortality is higher in right side and bilateral defects. We report a case of a patient with Bilateral CDH, initially diagnosed and treated as unilateral right CDH. At 8 months during a laparoscopic Ladd procedure a left side CDH was found.

Keywords : Bilateral congenital diaphragmatic hernia; Delayed diagnosis.
