      <ArticleTitle>Left Sided Boshdalek Hernia in Adult: A Case Report</ArticleTitle>
      <Abstract>Introduction: Congenital left diaphragmatic hernia of Bochdalek rarely occurs in adults. There are fewer than 100 cases of left-sided Bochdalek hernia reported in adults in the literature. Most of them are asymptomatic. Bochdalek hernias typically arise on the left side, contain fat or omentum, stomach, part of colon transverse, predominantly and small intestinal loops.&#13;
Aim: The aim of this paper is to present a rare case of Bochdalek hernia in adults and to point out the important role of Computed tomography (CT) in reaching the exact diagnosis of this abnormality.&#13;
Case report: We presented a rare case of a 46-year old female with left-sided Bochdalek diaphragmatic hernia, came to the Clinic of Surgery complaining of abdominal pain in the lower abdomen. The chest radiograph showed features suggestive of left-sided diaphragmatic hernia, which was confirmed using Multi-Dimensional Computed Tomography (MDCT).&#13;
Conclusion: Bochdalek hernia in adults occurs most frequently when the patients are undergoing CT for reasons that appear to be unrelated to the hernia</Abstract>
