PMID:  11500688     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We present an interesting case of a preterm Omani newborn that had delayed onset of congenital diaphragmatic hernia in association with group B streptococcus infection. The association and the pathogenesis are supported by literature review. The message to follow is that any neonate with prolonged course of streptococcal pneumonia, with unusual course, should be investigated for presence of congenital diaphragmatic hernia.
