    We report an Arab sibship of two brothers with non-syndromic, congenital diaphragmatic defects (CDD). The first had an extensive, left, Bochdalek-type hernia and the second hemidiaphragmatic agenesis; these were verified by surgical exploration and necropsy respectively. The parents are healthy second cousins. Other reported discordant cases of CDD are briefly reviewed.
