Abstract

Iatrogenic diaphragmatic hernias are a rarely reported complication of abdominal surgery. We present a case of an iatrogenic diaphragmatic hernia diagnosed 2 years after an adrenalectomy. Corrective laparoscopic surgery was performed, and the postoperative course was uneventful. The patient remained asymptomatic 6 months after the repair. To our knowledge, this is the first such case to be reported.
