A 36-year-old asymptomatic female had a routine chest radiograph to exclude pulmonary
tuberculosis, as part of an employee wellness programme. There was opacification of the
right lower thorax. Computed tomography and venography demonstrated an incidental
right Bochdalek hernia with interruption of the inferior vena cava (IVC) and hepatic venous
collateral continuation. The association of a Bochdalek hernia with an anomaly of the IVC is
rare, with only one case described in the literature.
