Intrapericardial diaphragmatic hernia in a 6-month-old girl:
Intrapericardial congenital diaphragmatic hernia (IPCDH) is extremely rare: only 18 cases in children have been reported in the literature since 1981. We report the 19th case of infantile IPCDH in a 6-month-old girl and compare with previous reports.

The patient was initially presented with four days of dyspnea and was diagnosed with CDH by preoperative radiography. She was taken to the operating room, where an IPCDH was discovered, and successfully reduced.
