Abstract

The combination of a Morgagni hernia and a paraesophageal hernia in adults is very rarely encountered in clinical practice.

We discuss the management of a 74-year-old man found to have combined Morgagni and paraesophageal hernia who presented with clinical features of a restrictive pulmonary disease.
