INTRODUCTION: Eventration of the diaphragm is an abnormal elevation of a thinned diaphragmatic muscle that causes elevation of the entire or part of the hemidiaphragm, or more commonly the anterior aspect of the hemidiaphragm.
In conclusion, the presence of features of visceral perforation in a patient with eventration of the diaphragm should raise the suspicion of not only acute gastric volvulus with gastric strangulation but also of an uncommon cause such as perforation owing to nasogastric tube and peptic ulcer perforation of the stomach, conditions which may occur in chronic gastric volvulus without strangulation.
Autum was diagnosed with eventration of the diaphragm, in which all or part of the diaphragmatic muscle is replaced by fibroelastic tissue.
