"Hepatodiaphragmatic interposition of small/large intestine" or "Chilaiditi syndrome" is a rare condition in which colon or small intestine is interposed (temporally or permanently) between liver and diaphragm. The syndrome is usually discovered by chance during the study of another event. The condition is often asymptomatic; however abdominal pain, abdominal distension, vomiting, anorexia, and constipation have previously been reported in clinical presentation of this rare syndrome. We report a 60-year-old female who presented in department of TB and Chest Diseases, S.N. Medical college, Agra with complaints of breathlessness, cough, constipation, and recurrent abdominal pain.
