Resumo

JONES, A L C  e  THIRSK, I. Misdiagnosis of diaphragmatic rupture in a trauma setting. S. Afr. j. surg. [online]. 2012, vol.50, n.3, pp. 93-94. ISSN 2078-5151.

Distinguishing diaphragmatic eventration from rupture in the trauma setting can be a considerable challenge. We present a case involving a man suffering from chest pain and with a raised left hemidiaphragm on the chest radiograph after a motor vehicle injury. A review of the literature discusses the use of imaging modalities and subsequent surgical diagnostic procedures in the face of uncertainty.
