They occur posteriorly and are due to a defect in the posterior attachment of the diaphragm when there is a failure of pleuroperitoneal membrane closure in utero. Retroperitoneal structures may prolapse through the defect, e. Large hernias typically present in infancy, are usually said to be most frequently left-sided, presumably owing to the protective effects of the liver, although recently this has been disputed, at least in adults 1. The left opening of the posterior diaphragm closes later in fetal life than the right which may also contribute to the asymmetric occurrence. Complications are usually due to pulmonary hypoplasia. In adults, incidentally-discovered posterior diaphragmatic hernias are rare 0.

A Bochdalek hernia is one of two forms of a congenital diaphragmatic hernia , the other form being Morgagni hernia. A Bochdalek hernia is a congenital abnormality in which an opening exists in the infant's diaphragm, allowing normally intra-abdominal organs particularly the stomach and intestines to protrude into the thoracic cavity. In the majority of patients, the affected lung will be deformed,  and the resulting lung compression can be life-threatening. This type of hernia was first studied and documented by the Czech Anatomist and Pathologist, Vincenz Alexander Bochdalek — In normal Bochdalek hernia cases, the symptoms are often observable simultaneously with the baby's birth. A few of the symptoms of a Bochdalek Hernia include difficulty breathing, fast respiration and increased heart rate. Also, if the baby appears to have cyanosis blue-tinted skin this can also be a sign.
