Bochdalek hernia with two unusual findings: a case report
In this report, the case of an
adult patient with a massive right-sided Bochdalek hernia with multiple
displaced abdominal organs, including the liver and gallbladder, is described.
This patient presented with acute cholecystitis of the malpositioned
gallbladder. During surgery, nodular regenerative hyperplasia of the liver was
also found. To the best of this author's knowledge, these two entities have
never been reported in association with this rare condition.
A 54-year-old Caucasian man
presented with nausea and epigastric pain. He had a known history of
right-sided Bochdalek hernia which was being managed expectantly. A
computerized tomogram revealed the massive hernia with displaced stomach,
liver, intestine and omentum into his right thorax. It was believed that our
patient had bowel incarceration and he was therefore taken to surgery, where
acute cholecystitis and a macronodular liver was identified. A thoracoabdominal
approach was used to remove his gallbladder, reduce the herniated viscera and
reconstruct his diaphragm. A liver biopsy identified nodular regenerative
hyperplasia of the ectopic liver. There were no postoperative complications and
at 12 month follow-up, our patient continues to do well.
This case report describes two
unusual findings associated with a congenital Bochdalek diaphragmatic hernia
that have never been reported. In addition, unique caveats to the surgical
management of this complex rare condition are discussed.
