Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is herniation of bowels and abdominal solid organs in the thoracic cavity, causing pulmonary hypoplasia with decreased pulmonary vasculature and dysfunction of the surfactant system. In severe cases, left ventricular hypoplasia is also observed. Usually CDH present in the neonatal period. Late-onset CDH is a rare anomaly with misleading symptoms and signs. We present here a case of late presentation of congenital diaphragmatic hernia misdiagnosed as hydropneumothorax in an 11-month-old male child.
