Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Paraoesophageal hernia is a type of hiatal hernia. The clinical signs are specific, different from those of the axial hernia. The diagnosis is often delayed. Once the diagnosis is made, surgical correction is mandatory. We present a new case of a patient with chest pain episodes who proved to have an intermittently volvulating paraoesophageal hernia.
