Bochdalek hernia (congenital diaphragmatic hernia) is a phenomena generally seen in early ages of life and rarely in adults. Bochdalek hernia commonly occurs on the left side and rarely on the right side. Patients are generally asymptomatic thus diagnosis may be incidental. Patients may experience gastrointestinal or respiratory symptoms. Chest x-ray may be misleading and thus confirmatory diagnostic test is computed tomography (CT). We present a rare right sided Bochdalek hernia in a 35 year old male that mimicked pleural effusion.
