  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We recently experienced Morgagni's hernia who was a patient with diagnosed preoperatively by multiplanar reformation (MPR) CT.

A 43-year-old obese woman was referred to our hospital because of slow-growing abnormal shadow in the right cardiophrenic angle on chest roentgenogram.

Computed tomography (CT) demonstrated a mass of fat density behind the sternum and MPR-CT revealed a mass in the anterior thoracic cavity that went through Morgagni's foramen into the abdominal cavity.
