Abstract: Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) was observed in a stranded juvenile male striped dolphin. The 2- to 3-y-old animal had survived with its stomachs and intestines in the thoracic cavity, which had caused a large size difference between its two lungs. The animal also had a relatively small penis. The animal's combination of anomalies was either due to a genetic syndrome or caused by maternal exposure to toxic agents.
