ABSTRACT
At New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine, a rare type of diaphragmatic hernia has been observed within a cadaver in the Anatomy department during routine dissections. Normally, congenital diaphragmatic hernias appear on the left side, namely a Bochdalek hernia. This particular hernia, a Morgagni type, is uniquely found on the anterior right side of the thorax. This 101- year-old female cadaveric specimen had a herniation of the greater omentum, stomach, and portion of the duodenum into the right side of the thorax, with an associated slight mediastinal shift to the left. In addition, this cadaver had a fleshy ‘string’ of tissue connecting the hernia sac to the sigmoid colon, a tortuous internal carotid artery, thickened costal cartilages, and weak fascia.

Keywords: Congenital malformation, Diaphragmatic hernia, Morgagni hernia, Tortuous artery
