In brief: Prenatally
Many infants are diagnosed by prenatal ultrasound.
In some instances mothers are given options . Fetal surgical options have gone by the wayside as there is no perfect prenatal fix.

In brief: Early Infancy
Most are detected in very early infancy or prenatally.
The use of routine prenatal ultrasound has dramatically increased the likelihood of detecting most congenital diaphragmatic hernias prenatally. If not detected prenatally, most hernias are symptomatic and create the need for imaging which detects the problem very early in life. Rarely, small hernias can persist undetected into adulthood.
