Abstract

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) refers to a diaphragmatic defect that allows herniation of some abdominal viscera into the thoracic cavity. We present a male neonate with CDH and bilateral cryptorchidism managed in our facility with limited expertise for cardiothoracic surgery. We highlight some of the challenges in the management.
