Abstract

The diagnosis of diaphragmatic disruptions secondary to blunt trauma is difficult because the patients are usually asymptomatic. Delay in recognition of this injury can be life threatening. The presence of previous pulmonary pathology makes the diagnosis even more difficult to establish. In this report, a diaphragmatic tear was diagnosed using intraperitoneal instillation of Tc-99m MAA.
