The authors present a pair of identical twins with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) diagnosed prenatally, who underwent successful surgical repair. They were diagnosed as having CDH at 32 weeks' gestation and showed respiratory distress soon after cesarean section at 33 weeks' gestation. Both survived after scheduled perinatal management followed by surgery, for which the prenatal diagnosis of CDH was valuable.
