    Focal eventration of the diaphragm with transthoracic kidney is a very rare condition. It is usually asymptomatic and often revealed as an incidental finding on imaging studies. We presented a case of previously undiagnosed focal eventration of left hemidiaphragm with transthoracic left kidney confused with traumatic diaphragmatic hernia. Differentiation of these two conditions is important as each were managed differently. A traumatic diaphragmatic hernia needs early surgical intervention whereas no treatment was required for focal diaphragmatic eventration in most cases. Diagnostic laparoscopy confirmed the findings in this case and the patient was managed conservatively.

    Focal eventration involving the posterior segment of the
    hemidiaphragm is a rare congenital anomaly. We report of a 10-
    day-old infant who presented with significant respiratory
    insufficiency and failure to show any responses to standard
    treatment. The diagnosis of focal eventration of the diaphragm
    was not anticipated until ultrasonographic examination revealed
    the defect. Diaphragmatic plication resulted in complete
    resolution of symptoms. A high level clinical awareness is
    crucial as a relatively simple surgical procedure could avert long
    term life-threatening complications.

    Eventration of the diaphragm is caused by weakened musculature of the diaphragm. This can occur in one or
    both hemidiaphragms. Symptoms may be minimal and it is usually detected incidentally on chest radiograph
    which would show an elevation of the diaphragm. We report and discuss a case of eventration of right
    diaphragm in a patient presented with a lobulated lung mass on chest radiograph.
