A Morgagni hernia was found in a 53-year-old male patient during a laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedure. The hernia was closed using a direct suturing technique. The hernial sac was not excised. A 12-month follow-up showed no hernia recurrence. This case indicated that laparoscopic approach is a suitable and safe procedure for treatment of Morgagni's hernia in obese patients.
