We ­report the ­case of a 23-­year-old man who was admit­ted to our Division ­with the diag­no­sis of per­i­car­dial lip­o­ma. Chest X-ray, ech­o­car­di­og­ra­phy and mag­net­ic res­o­nance imag­ing ­failed to ­reveal an ante­ri­or dia­phrag­mat­ic her­nia con­tain­ing a ­small ­part of the stom­ach ­with a big pre­her­ni­al lip­o­ma ­that ­were ­found at sur­gery. We ­believe ­that in all cas­es of sus­pect­ed per­i­car­dial lip­o­ma a dia­phrag­mat­ic her­nia ­should be expect­ed.
