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.
