A rare cause of a cavitary lung lesion in an infant

Sarah Macios Tesoriero, Elissa Gross

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Paraesophageal hernias in children are rare, and can occur congenitally or be acquired. Acquired cases most often follow anti-gastroesophageal reflux surgery, or less commonly trauma. In children, elective repair is encouraged at the time of diagnosis to prevent future life-threatening complications.
