The patient referred to our hospital at 29 weeks. The detailed ultrasound study demonstrated the stomach behind the heart, the slight deviation of the heart, and the vascular connection between the right chest organ and inferior vena cava. Bilateral congenital diaphragmatic hernia was suggested and confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging. A baby was delivered at 37 weeks and immediately placed on high-frequency oscillation ventilation. Although a surgical correction of the bilateral hernia under extracorporeal membrane oxygenation was completed, he expired at 14 h of age.
