A symptomatic case of diaphragmatic hernia through the foramen of Morgagni-Larrey in an adult patient is presented. Etiology, diagnosis and particularly, indications of differences between open and laparoscopic repair of diaphragmatic hernia are discussed. In the case presented laparoscopic technique was carried out by means of tension-free closure of the defect using extraperitoneal prolene-mesh. The recovery was quick and uneventful. Four years after surgery no compliants were noticed.
