Abstract

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) occurs in 1 of every 2000 to 5000 live births and accounts for 8% of all major congenital anomalies. CDH is a diagnosis with multiple, mostly unknown origin and its clinical presentation is highly variable. We are presenting a case of CDH hernia in a neonate, whith prenatal diagnosis at 32 week without any other associated malformation, that was repaired successfully using a staged thoracoscopic approach. Bochdalek described CDH in 1848, and the first surgical repair in a child was reported in 1905. Silen et al first reported thoracoscopic repair in 1995, but the reported world experience includes very few cases in neonates.
