Abstract

Diagnosis of a hiatal hernia (HH) is typically made using an upper gastro-intestinal barium X-ray. A complementary test is gastroscopy or upper-intestinal endoscopy. There are reports in which HH has been diagnosed by echocardiography. We here describe a case of a HH visible on an echocardiogram in a female with palpitations.
