PERRONE, Gonzalo; SALVATIERRA, Martín  and  GONZALEZ, Daniel. Morgagni Hernia. Infrequentdiaphragmatic hernia. Cir. parag. [online]. 2020, vol.44, n.1, pp.32-33. ISSN 2307-0420.

The Morgagni hernia corresponds to a rare congenital defect of the diaphragm. Its diagnosis is established as an incidental finding or in the presence of non-specific respiratory and / or digestive symptoms, as well as its complications. The treatment is surgical given the possibility of complications. We present the case of a patient with a symptomatic Morgagni hernia, in which we performed a laparoscopic hernioplasty.

Keywords : Morgagni hernia; laparoscopic.
