Morgagni hernia is a rare condition in childhood, and it may be asymptomatic or produce respiratory symptoms. Two cases with Morgagni hernias are presented. Both patients had occasionally respiratory infection, coughing and fever. The diagnosis was made with a chest radiograph taken for respiratory infection.
