Wasfi Salayta, Jamal Alaydi.

Abstract
Bochdalek hernia is a pediatric disease, and in neonatal age group it is the most common diaphragmatic hernia. Symptomatic presentation in an adult patient is a rare condition and it might confuse the treating physician leading to a misdiagnosis. We report a case of a 65 year old female patient referred from Prince Hashim Military Hospital to King Husain Medical City as a case of gastric outlet obstruction. The preoperative diagnosis of diaphragmatic hernia was made based on upper endoscopy and radiological study. The patient made complete recovery after laparotomy and primary repair of the hernia . In this case report we discuss the clinical presentation , investigations and management of this rare condition.

Key words: Diaphragmatic hernia, gastric outlet obstruction.
