The case report of a 25 years patient with 21 weeks of gestation is presented, discharged to the Genetics Municipal Center in Santiago de Cuba for presenting altered alpha-fetoprotein (G3A1P1). The prescribed echography was carried out, in which an echo lucid image was observed at the thorax level similar to a mass, stomach absence in the abdomen, polyhydramnioses and decrease of the abdominal circumference; therefore, she was transferred to the Provincial Center of Genetics where she was evaluated by a multidisciplinary team which confirmed the diagnosis of diaphragmatic hernia in the fetus and, with the couple's consent, the interruption of pregnancy was decided.

Key words: gestation, fetus, alpha-fetoprotein, echography, diaphragmatic hernia.
