A traumatic diaphragmatic hernia is a type of diaphragmatic hernia which is acquired through an abdominal injury. This is in contrast to a congenital diaphragmatic hernia, which is present from birth.

It can occur after splenectomy.cite journal |author=Tsuboi K, Omura N, Kashiwagi H, Kawasaki N, Suzuki Y, Yanaga K |title=Delayed traumatic diaphragmatic hernia after open splenectomy: report of a case |journal=Surg. Today |volume=38 |issue=4 |pages=352–4 |year=2008 |pmid=18368327 |doi=10.1007/s00595-007-3627-0 |url=]

Because it can be indicative of severe trauma, it often co-presents with pelvic fracture.cite journal |author=Meyers BF, McCabe CJ |title=Traumatic diaphragmatic hernia.
