Abstract
In the reported scenario, the patient known for a history of operated Bochdalek hernia or congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) presented with new abdominal pain. The CT-scan suspected the presence of pancreas herniation through a recurrent CDH. Intraoperatively, the patient was found to have a recurrent CDH containing greater omentum concomitantly with a pulmonary sequestration (PS). This case report highlights the fact that intraoperative findings can be different from preoperative radiological diagnosis. In this patient the unusual diaphragmatic hernia content was not identified on preoperative CT.
