We present a 37-year-old woman with a rare combination of absent pericardium with congenital diaphragmatic hernia. Only 3 patients with congenital diaphragmatic hernia with complete absence of pericardium and ectopic liver have been described, and all of them were neonates. This interesting case gives us an opportunity to study the natural history of this rare combination of anatomic defect and consolidate the existing scarce data on this condition.
