By Paolo Carcoforo, L DI MARCO, Am Schettino, T. Rocca, Savino Occhionorelli, V Pollinzi and I. Donini


Morgagni-Larrey's hernias are congenital diaphragmatic hernias, rarely observed and generally identified accidentally due to the lack of symptoms. The authors report a case of intestinal occlusion secondary to Morgagni-Larrey herniation in an adult recently observed and underline the aetiopathogenic aspects, the diagnostic tools and the clinical pattern. They suggest to consider surgical repair as a choice of treatment, also for asymptomatic patients
