The clinical diagnosis of traumatic diaphragmatic rupture is difficult and it may even be more problematic if there are any concurrent injuries. In underdiagnosed patients, the symptoms may emerge in late terms. For an early and definitive diagnosis, the patient should be evaluated with a thoracoabdominal computerized tomography and a chest X-ray. This paper presents the case report of a patient diagnosed with the traumatic rupture of the diaphragm on the 2nd day of trauma although the initial radiographic imaging tests had provided normal findings.
