A paraesophageal hernia was diagnosed in a 67-year-old female patient suffering from epigastric pain and gastroesophageal reflux disease. The patient underwent laparoscopy. Beside the paraesophageal hernia, a Morgagni hernia was also observed, with a significant part of the omentum herniated in the sac. A 360-degree Nissen fundoplication was performed, the Morgagni hernia sac was not resected, and its closure was performed with interrupted sutures. No complications were observed in the postoperative period and on one-year follow-up the patient was free of symptoms.
