Abstract

Hernias are common in patients with osteogenesis imperfecta, but to our knowledge there have been no reports of diaphragmatic hernias in such patients. We describe a patient with osteogenesis imperfecta in whom a diaphragmatic hernia contained a strangulated segment of the splenic flexure of the colon. Resection of the necrotic tissue and transverse colostomy resulted in an uneventful recovery.
