Description/Abstract

The prenatal sonographic features of a fetus with right-sided congenital diaphragmatic hernia diagnosed at 33 weeks are presented. Color Doppler demonstrated an abnormal course of the right renal artery, arising from the aorta and feeding the intrathoracic right kidney. This case report stresses the role of color Doppler in defining which organs have herniated in fetuses with diaphragmatic hernia.
