Abstract

Traumatic diaphragmatic rupture is a frequently missed diagnosis. We present a patient with traumatic diaphragmatic hernia. Diagnosis was suggested by a emergent computed tomography (CT) examination without oral contrast. Diaphragmatic rupture and herniation of stomach were confirmed by repeating CT examination after the administration of oral contrast and using multiplanar reconstruction.
