abstract

  • There are several reported cases of late presentations of right diaphragmatic hernia with early- as well as late-onset group B streptococcal (GBS) infections. The authors describe the first case of late-onset left diaphragmatic hernia with late onset GBS infection in a preterm infant. The diagnosis was prompted by a dramatic clinical deterioration during the recovery phase of GBS sepsis.
