Abstract

The authors describe a child with thoracic kidney in whom the left diaphragm was not attached to the posterolateral wall and the kidney, left colon and stomach were shifted upwards between the endothoracic fascia and the parietal pleura. The relationship between this type of retropleural diaphragmatic hernia, and the diaphragmatic hernia through the foramen of Bochdalek is discussed. Review of the pertinent literature reveals a different incidence regarding both the affected side and sex in these 2 conditions. It is likely that the defect involved in thoracic kidney differs embryologically and anatomically from Bochdalek's foramen.
