What's your diagnosis?
I'll post the correct answer in a couple of days!
diaphragmatic hernia the rt kidney is herniated through the rt diaphragmatic copula
Ectopic kidney maybe?
Right kidney with a portion of liver entered to thorax
Thoracal kidney due to defect in diaphragm; the right kidney and part of the liver herniate in the thorax.
It’s a rare congenital disorder, this case especially because the right kidney doesn’t herniate that easily because of the location of the liver. Although it may seem serious, in this case no intervention was needed.
Separate names with a comma.
