The result of sustained injuries or holes in the diaphragm is a diaphragmatic hernia, which can result in the collapse of abdominal organs into cavity of the chest.

Over the course of pregnancy, congenital diaphragmatic hernia, or CDH, can result from the diaphragm developing poorly, and result in the child born with a malformed lung (or lungs) due to an intrusion of organs of the abdomen into chest cavity.

In most cases, fortunately, only one lung gets affected. When identified promptly, the condition can receive proper treatment.

ADH, or acquired diaphragmatic hernia, happens when the victim sustains a blunt stomach or chest injury, or is victimized by a violent crime, like shooting or stabbing.

CDH symptoms are typically present when a child is born. The newborn baby must endure surgery within life of the initial one to two days in order to achieve complete recovery.
