This case report reveals the importance of laparoscopic management and the successful evolution of a 33-year-old patient with a 1.5 cm long left diaphragmatic hernia due to a car crash that occurred 7 years earlier, who presented with a week of intense stabbing pain in the epigastrium, accompanied by multiple vomiting. For this reason, in patients with a history of thoracoabdominal injury, the diagnosis of diaphragmatic hernia should be considered.
