Last revised by Dr Daniel J Bell on 17 May 2021

A diaphragmatic lung hernia (plural: hernias or herniae) is extremely rare, characterized by a lung herniation through the diaphragm into the abdominal cavity. There has been a single case report 2

This is not to be confused with the far more common congenital or traumatic diaphragmatic hernias.
