A 45-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with left subcostal pain of sudden onset. Although this symptom had occurred frequently, no diagnosis had been established. An emergency chest roentgenogram suggested diaphragmatic hernia. Computed tomography and gastrography revealed Bochdalek hernia. It is important that diagnostic imaging be performed while symptoms are present in suspected cases of diaphragmatic hernia.
