It is the hernia sac of a sternocostally situated left Morgagni diaphragmatic hernia in a 3-year-old girl with Turner syndrome. Notice on the left in the picture the lung held to the side, the phrenic nerve running over the diaphragm in a lateral direction, and the cranial end of a liver process within the hernia sac !Łatno_6_pŁ!.
