Morgagni hernia is one of the rare diseases, accounting for approximately 2% of all congenital diaphragmatic hernias. Despite their congenital etiology, they are detected less often in infancy than in adulthood. These patients are usually asymptomatic and discovered accidentally, or if symptomatic they present with variable non-specific symptoms and hence diagnosis is usually delayed. They may present as an isolated anomaly or associated with various syndromes. Morgagni hernia associated with Tetralogy of Fallot is a rare abnormality among congenital heart diseases. Here we present an extremely rare case with coexistent congenital Morgagni hernia and Tetralogy of Fallot with successful surgical outcome.
