A Neonate with Eventration of Diaphragm
Abstract: A term male neonate weighing 2720 gm was born to Gravida 2 lady by normal vaginal route. The immediate post natal period was uneventful. At 12 hrs of life, the baby developed poor feeding and fast breathing and was shifted to NICU. The initial evaluation revealed decrease in air entry on left infraaxillary and infrascapular region. The lab investigation showed features of sepsis. The CXR showed raised hemidiaphragm with intact continuity on left side. The neonate was started on CPAP, antibiotics and IV fluids and was prepared for surgery.
