Answers Neo quiz

  1. X-ray: Congenital diaphragmatic hernia

  2. Morgagni/Anterior hernia

  3. Bochdalek hernia (A) is the most common type

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) refers to a developmental defect of the formation of the diaphragm that, in most individuals, is evident at birth.

CDH is characterized by:

  1. Incomplete formation/muscularization of the diaphragm resulting in absence or deficiency of the diaphragm, or

  2. Eventration resulting in elevation of a portion of the diaphragm that is thinned as a result of incomplete muscularization. The prevalence of CDH is estimated at 3–3.6/10,000 live births.

  3. Posterolateral hernias comprise approximately 80–90% of all CDHs. About 85% of Bochdalek hernias occur on the left side, about 10% on the right, and approximately 5% are bilateral.[1]
