Giant hiatal hernias, generally seen at advanced ages, can rarely cause cardiorespiratory symptoms such as dyspnea and chest pain. Here, we aimed to present a case with a large hiatal hernia that largely protruded to intrathoracic cavity and caused dyspnea, particularly at postprandial period. We report a case of a 74-year-old female who presented with one-month history of progressive shortness of breath and left sided chest pain.
