    CASE REPORT

A case of traumatic pericardiophrenic rupture

Stefani A., Brandi L., Ruggiero C., Lodi R.

An unusual case of traumatic pericardiophrenic rupture is presented. The defect was limited to the central tendon of the diaphragm. With herniation of the stomach into the pericardial sac. A correct preoperative diagnosi was not made because laparotomy was quickly performed for splenic rupture. Successful operative repair of the tear was performed, with interrupted reabsorbable sutures. The case is discussed and the management of patients with these rare lesions is reviewed.
