Congenital right diaphragmatic hernia of Bochdalek rarely occurs in adults and usually is asymptomatic. We report a right Bochdalek hernia with chronic liver herniation and intestinal malrotation in a 55-year old woman who presented with acute intestinal occlusion. The diagnosis required definitive confirmation by CT scan. With impending strangulation, emergency surgery through a thoracoabdominal approach resulted in an easy hernia repair and reduced the technical difficulties due to the intestinal malrotation.
