A 43-year-old woman came to the Emergency Room with acute abdominal pain during the night. CT examination of the abdomen showed ventral herniation of the stomach and parts of the small intestine and colon in the right hemithorax. We made the diagnosis 'symptomatic Morgagni hernia', a rare congenital defect that is usually diagnosed soon after birth.
