Bochdalek hernia (BH) is a rare occurrence in adults. Even rare is recurrence after surgical repair. The case presented here is rare case of large Adult Bochdalek hernia which recurred after failed surgical repair after many years in a elderly female who could pass through the stress of two full term pregnancies. Clinicians should be aware that large Bochdalek hernia can persist in adults despite surgical repair which can pose as a diagnostic and management challenge.
