Congenital diaphragmatic hernias are generally appearing in childhood, but are also occasionally detected in asymptomatic adult patients. Computed tomography is used for the correct diagnosis the hernia type and for its localization, facilitating its management and the choice of treatment. We report the case of parasternal diaphragmatic hernia of Morgagni-Larrey and two cases of posteriolateral Bochdalek diaphragmatic hernia. The patients showed no symptoms and were not surgically treated.
