The disease may remain latent, even if there is a multiple organ herniation in diaphragmatic hernias and cause hypoplastic lung, as long as there is not an additional problem affecting prognosis. In case of an additional pathology, it may result in a life-threatening clinical presentation. Therefore, an attentive examination and detailed history would greatly help the clinician. During routine pregnancy tests, dyspnea and intestinal complaints should be questioned and abdomen and thorax should be screened, as well, during the ultrasonic screening of the pelvic area, if indicated.
