Abstract
A 4-year-old cat was referred for a suspected pulmonary mass. True diaphragmatic hernia presence was diagnosed viacomputed tomography (CT). There was a thin membrane covering the diaphragmatic defect. The membrane was thinner than thediaphragm. After contrast injection, the membrane was less enhanced than that of the normal diaphragm. The membrane wasidentified as a remnant of the parietal pleura. In addition, contrast-enhanced CT images provided clarity in viewing the herniated liverand falciform fat. A thinner membrane, covering the diaphragmatic defect, and attached to the thicker normal diaphragm, isconsidered a unique CT feature of true diaphragmatic hernia.
