Abstract: Congenital diaphragmatic hernias (CDHs) in Hawaii between 1987 and 1996 were examined with data from a birth defects surveillance system. There were 51 cases of CDH (prevalence 2.45 per 10,000 births). Forty-nine percent of livebirths survived, an increase over the rate reported in Hawaii in 1975-1982. These results are similar to those reported by other population-based studies.
