Bochdalek's hernia is a congenital posterior diaphragmatic defect, resulting from persistence of the pleuroperitoneal canal of embryonic life. Bochdalek's hernias are rare occurrences in adult patients and they present commonly with digestive symptoms and need surgical therapy. This article describes a case of an 88-year-old female with symptomatic right Bochdalek defect containing intrabdominal viscera with no hernial sac.
