ABSTRACT: Paraesophageal hiatus hernia with an intrathoracic stomach is an uncommon surgical emergency in the neonatal period. The clinical features are mainly dependent upon the associated intrathoracic stomach and its degree of volvulus. The symptoms may sometimes suggest the presence of esophageal atresia which is ruled out by the passage of a nasogastric tube. The contrast study of the upper gastrointestinal tract is diagnostic. Prompt surgical intervention in the form of reduction of the paraesophageal hernia, derogation of the stomach volvulus and repair of the esophageal hiatus is associated with good outcome.
