Mentions: An 82-year-old woman came to our hospital with chief complaint of nausea and vomiting that worsened after taking meal from 2 weeks ago. She had no epigastric pain or dysphagia or odynophagia and no weight loss was detected. She had no history of blunt trauma prior to this problem. A chest X-ray was done and showed round opacity with air-fluid level at right hemithorax on the dome of the diaphragm (Figure 2). Biochemical marker was normal. On further workup, thoracic CT scan was performed and revealed part of the colon, omentum, and stomach herniated into the thorax. When the diagnosis is confirmed, the patient was prepared for laparoscopic surgery.
