Morgagni hernia is a rare congenital diaphragmatic disease that is usually asymptomatic and discovered by chance during routine diagnostic tests performed for other pathologies. Here we present a case of strangulated Morgagni hernia in a 27 year-old man admitted with sign and symptoms of an acute abdomen. A CT scan confirmed the presence of the stomach, omentum, splenic flexura of colon and spleen in the left pleural cavity. An emergency laparotomy permitted reduction of the herniation and repair of the diaphragmatic defect.
