Herniation of the stomach through the esophageal hiatus can occur as a common Sliding hernia (Type 1) in which the gastro esophageal junction slides into the thorax, or Paraesophageal (Type 2) in which a portion of the stomach (usually the fundus) is insinuated next to the oesophagus inside the gastroesophageal junction in the hiatus. A combination of sliding and paraesophageal type (Type 3) is present in some patients. We have presented here a case report of a preterm baby who developed hiatal hernia while on CPAP on DOL 13. We are presenting this case due to rarity of its occurrence.
