BERTY GUTIERREZ, Hedgar  e  DIAZ PI, Oscar. Diaphragmatic Hernia: A Diagnostic Challenge. Rev haban cienc méd [online]. 2021, vol.20, n.4, e4196.  Epub 10-Ago-2021. ISSN 1729-519X.

Introduction:

Traumatic diaphragmatic hernia is a serious complication of abdominal or thoracic trauma. It is considered a rare pathology. The diagnosis is difficult and can often go unnoticed.

Objective:

The purpose of this clinical case is to demonstrate the need to suspect the presence of diaphragmatic hernia in patients with thoracoabdomial trauma.

Case Presentation:

Seventy-five-year-old patient who suffers a traffic accident. At initial evaluation no clinical-radiological alterations were observed, but later the patient presented an unfavorable evolution with radiographic finding of a traumatic diaphragmatic hernia.

Conclusions:

Diaphragmatic hernia, when present, is a real challenge for the diagnosis by the medical staff since it requires a high index of suspicion and an adequate use of diagnostic images. It is considered an important entity in the evaluation of the trauma patient.

Palavras-chave : Diaphragmatic hernia; trauma; diagnosis, clinical-radiological alterations.
