Diaphragmatic hernia complicating pregnancy rarely occurs, but it is frequently misdiagnosed. A strangulated diaphragmatic hernia in a pregnant patient presents a true surgical emergency, and delay in operative intervention can result in fetal and maternal mortality in as many as 50% of cases. We describe a case report of a pregnant patient and her fetus surviving after a spontaneous gastric rupture from a strangulated diaphragmatic hernia.
