Abstract

We report three male patients in whom the diagnosis of diaphragmatic rupture was raised. Conventional X ray examination showed an unilateal bulging of the diaphragmatic dome in two and the association of basal atelectasis in the third. Magnetic resonance imaging confirmed the diagnosis of diaphragmatic rupture in all. The diaphragmatic rupture was repaired surgically in two patients and the other was managed medically.
