Congenital postero-lateral diaphragmatic hernia in children



Congenital postero-lateral diaphragmatic hernia in children



California Medicine 119(4): 6-9



Congenital diaphragmatic hernia must be seriously considered in the differential diagnosis of acute respiratory distress in neonates as well as in older infants who present with chronic progressive gastrointestinal and respiratory symptoms. An x-ray film of the chest is mandatory and is almost always diagnostic. Immediate nasogastric decompression of the stomach, with simultaneous fluid and electrolyte replacement and prompt surgical intervention offers the patient the best chance of survival.
