Summary of "A case of 'an upside down stomach'"

Neonatal paraesophageal hernia with intrathoracic gastric volvulus is very rare in the newborn period. We report a case of a 2-day-old term neonate who presented with an antenatal diagnosis of paraesophageal hernia. We discuss the diagnosis and management with classical radiological features including an antenatal diagnosis of this extremely rare surgical cause of neonatal nonbilious emesis.
