Abstract

Right-sided blunt diaphragmatic rupture is not uncommon. Its incidence has definitely increased. As expected, total or partial herniation of the liver commonly occurs with this entity. Diaphragmatic-pericardial rupture with visceral herniation into the pericardial cavity and other rare injuries have been diagnosed, but we found no report of extension of a diaphragmatic tear of a herniation of the liver. Such a case is reported here.
