Blunt injury liver associated with diaphragmatic tear and bilious pleural effusion is a rare clinical finding in children. A 12 years old boy was referred to us for respiratory distress following blunt injury abdomen. Investigations revealed liver contusion, tear in right dome of the diaphragm, bilious collection in subphrenic space and right pleural cavity. He responded well to the right intercostal chest tube drainage and antibiotics.
