We report a case of laparoscopic repair of symptomatic Morgagni hernia (MH) in an adult. A tension-free closure of the defect was carried out using a polypropylene mesh. The recovery was quick and uneventful. Two years after surgery, the patient is doing well. A search of the English-language surgical literature revealed a total of 55 cases of laparoscopic repair of MH reported: 40 in adults and 15 in children. The various modalities of diagnosis, operative techniques, and disease presentation are discussed.
