Abstract

Traumatic diaphragmatic rupture (TDR) is a recognized consequence of high velocity blunt trauma to the abdomen usually a result of motor vehicle accident (MVA) and occasionally by penetrating thoraco abdominal trauma .Blunt traumatic iaphragmatic rupture (BTDR) is a life threatening condition with an incidence of 0.8%–1.6% in blunt trauma [1–3]. The diagnosis often happens to be late due to the absence of typical symptoms or other major injuries dominating the clinical aspect [4]. An isolated BTDR is rare. Here we present a rare case of isolated blunt traumatic diaphragmatic rupture with its review of literature.
