Paraesophageal hernias is seldom founds which presenting symptoms challenging in a spectrum from non-specific symptoms such as heartburn and regurgitation to life threatening gastric volvulus or necrosis. These patients were often diagnosed by imaging investigations or endoscopy for unrelated reasons. Treatment of giant para-esophageal hernias is challenging. Debates continuous in selection of the treatment options whether these hernias require a surgical intervention -particularly- in asymptomatic patients. We are presenting a case with an incarcerated Type IV giant para-esophageal hernia having severe sleep-apnea, dysrhythmias and heartburn.
