Incidence of congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) ranges from 1 in 2,400 to one in 5,000 live births. Associated anomalies in CDH are approximately 30% to 35%. The authors report on an infant with CDH and an accessory supradiaphragmatic liver with separate vascularization from the thoracic aorta. The pathogenesis of this malformation is discussed. The postoperative course and the follow-up of the child over 5 years was completely uneventful. Copyright 2001 by W.B. Saunders Company.
