Late presenting cases represent between 5% and 25% of all cases and have a better prognosis. We present the case of a 5 month child with a right sided CDH diagnosed by a chest x-ray, we discuss the pathogenesis, treatment and prognosis. In conclusion when CDH is diagnosed later in life the prognosis is better and the results of surgery excellent
