Seckel syndrome is an autosomal recessive disease presenting with microcephalic dwarfism, mental retardation and facial and skeletal abnormalities. Morgagni hernia is quite rare, constituting 1-6% of all diaphragmatic hernias. It is asymptomatic, especially in childhood. Morgagni hernia has never been reported in patients with Seckel Syndrome. Here we report a 3-year-old boy diagnosed as having Seckel Syndrome with Morgagni hernia, which has to be considered during physical examination of patients.
