Abstract

There have been a small number of documented cases of isolated congenital diaphragmatic hernia and ipsilateral limb defects. Early cervical neural crest injury has been postulated as the mechanism behind the coexistence of these two defects. We present a case of left-sided congenital diaphragmatic hernia and ipsilateral radial ray defect consisting of thumb hypoplasia and absent radius. Our patient is an adult who presented for reproductive counselling providing an opportunity for long term follow-up.
