Diaphragmatic hernia may be asymptomatic and may have a delayed clinical manifestation. We describe a 78-year-old man who developed colonic obstruction as a complication to a diaphragmatic hernia. Unlike most diaphragmatic hernias, this case was not associated with a trauma. Normally, the diagnosis is made clinically by means of thoracic X-ray, computer tomography or magnetic resonance imagining of the abdomen. In this patient, barium enema showed a tumor-like stenosis of the left colonic flexure, but intraoperative findings demonstrated a defect in the left diaphragm with herniation of the left colonic flexure and the greater omentum.
