bochdalek hernia features (mnemonic)

A helpful mnemonic for remembering the features of a Bochdalek hernia is:

  • 5 Bs


  • B: Bochdalek
  • B: big
  • B: back and lateral, usually on the left side
  • B: baby
  • B: bad (associated with pulmonary hypoplasia)

To remember the side in which a Bochdalek hernia more commonly occurs (and to contrast that with Morgagni hernias) Bochdalek has an L for left and Morgagni has an R for right.
