The authors report a case of 6-week-old baby boy with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). He presented with nonspecific gastrointestinal symptoms. CDH is commonly manifested by nonspecific respiratory problems. The symptoms of CDH in older infants are atypical and misleading. Children may have only gastrointestinal problems even the acute abdomen. In our case, the ultrasound examination of abdomen didn‘t detect the exact cause of vomiting and intolerance of oral intake, but the explanation has brought classic chest X-ray.
Key words: congenital diaphragmatic hernia, gastrointestinal problems, respiratory problems, chest X-ray.
