OBJECTIVE. This report discusses the relationship of supradiaphragmatic hepatic tissue that is fused to the lung (through a diaphragmatic defect) with pulmonary hypoplasia - a new constellation of findings. CONCLUSION. Hepatic pulmonary fusion should be suspected in instances of apparent diaphragmatic hernia characterized by mediastinal shift towards the hypoplastic lung or when the mediastinum does not shift away from the mass.
