The most common associated malformations were cardiac pathologies (4) and pectus carinatum (2) whereas there was also one from each subsequent pathology; Chilaiditi syndrome, thymoma, hydrocephaly, gastroesophageal reflux and corrected hiatal hernia.
Computed tomography of the abdomen highlighted the presence of an anterior interposition of the colon to the liver reaching the undersurface of the right hemidiaphragm-the so-called Chilaiditi's sign (Figures 1-2); this clinical condition is also called as pseudopneumoperitoneum.
Chilaiditi syndrome is a rare disease in which the bowel (usually transverse colon or hepatic flexure) or the small intestine is found interposed in between the diaphragm and the liver, and was first described in 1910 by the Greek radiologist Demetrius Chilaiditi.
Computed tomography (CT) scan showed interposition of the colon or small bowel in the hepatodiaphragmatic space, known as Chilaiditi syndrome, and a mass lesion with an undefined margin surrounding the perihilar region (Figure 1a).
Chilaiditi syndrome is a rare condition in which there is radiographic evidence of colonic interposition between the liver and the diaphragm or abdominal wall, resulting in clinical symptoms [1].

Chilaiditi sign is an incidental radiologic finding first described by Greek radiologist Dimitrios Chilaiditi in 1906 as an interposition of colonic loops between the diaphragm and the live?.
Chilaiditi's syndrome is caused by hepatodiaphragmatic interposition of colon and is usually asymptomatic.[sup.1] It is often detected by chance during radiological examination.
