Eventration of diaphragm: an incidental finding

AYAZ AHMED ABBASSI, ISHTIAQ AHMED CHAUDHARY, ASHRAF ALI MALLHI.

Abstract
Eventration of diaphragm is a difficult diagnosis especially in patients who sustain blunt trauma to abdomen or lower chest. Usually, the final diagnosis is made after a contrast CT scan or MRI. Sometimes, this condition is picked up on routine clinical examination of the patients. It is difficult to differentiate this condition from congenital diaphragmatic hernia of Bochdalek type and also from traumatic rupture of the diaphragm. A case of eventration of diaphragm is presented.

Key words: Eventration, diaphragm, diaphragmatic hernia
