WHILE not unheard of, congenital diaphragmatic hernia on the right diagnosed in infancy is believed rare enough to warrant the report of a single case.

This child was observed by me at regular intervals from birth until the seventh month, at which time symptoms referable to the abnormality first developed.

HISTORY OF THE CASE  J. L. H. III was born Oct. 10, 1946, being the first child of a 17 year old mother. During the second month of gestation a positive Wassermann reaction had been obtained, and intensive antisyphilitic treatment was carried out during the entire pregnancy. At the time of delivery both the mother's Wassermann reaction and the Wassermann reaction of the cord were negative.The infant breathed spontaneously at birth, and his color was good at all times. Breast feeding was supplemented with a Dryco formula.At four weeks the infant's gain was insufficient and he seemed hungry.
