Peritoneal cancer is often treated as advanced ovarian adenocarcinoma, with cytoreduction as the surgical procedure. For peritoneal cancer with extensive peritoneal spread, peritonectomy including diaphragmatic peritonectomy is often performed for optimal surgery. The most common complications are pleural effusion, pneumothorax, and endoabdominal collections. However, diaphragmatic hernia is a rare complication. We report here, a case of left diaphragmatic hernia, a rare complication that occurred nine months post-surgery that included diaphragmatic peritonectomy after neoadjuvant chemotherapy for peritoneal cancer.
