Abstract

We present a case of 74-years old male cadaver in which morgagni hernia and associated pathologies was observed during the routine dissection. Besides the hernia, pectum carinatum, sliding hernia and hydronephrosis at the right kidney were strike findings as an associated anomalies. Morgagni hernia is the rarest one among all the diphragmatic hernias, associated with serious anomalies. Since it has a clinical importance, precise anatomical occupation and definition of this variation on a cadaver as well as the associate anomalies is being reported by comparing with other related literature, to establish occurence pattern and importance of the operational base of morgagni hernia.
