Diagnosis With Brief Discussion

Diagnosis
Morgagni's hernia
Radiologic Findings
Chest radiograph shows well-defined opacity in right cardiophrenic angle. Sequential CT scans shows paracardiac mass composed of fatty tissue, which is continuous with fat below the diaphragm. Focal defect is seen in anterior portion of diaphragm and curvilinear densities within fatty mass
Brief Review
The foramen of Morgagni’s hernia is the least common of the diaphragmatic hernias, comprising 3% of surgically treated hernias. Morgagni’s hernia is rare in adults and occurs more often in children, in whom herniation of bowel is more common. Radiographically, Morgagni’s hernias generally present as homogeneous masses in the right cardiophrenic angle. Though colonic herniation was rare, the characteristic deformity and upward displacement of the transverse colon was thought to be highly suggestive of Morgagni’s hernia. With the advent of CT, the diagnosis can be made with confidence of in the setting of a fat-containing cardiophrenic angle mass with associated omental or mesenteric vessels. MR imaging reveals the fatty nature of the mass, defines the omental vessels, and can precisely define the diaphragmatic defect.
