I believe it's 756.6...see what you think.

Hmmm...now I'm second guessing myself. Maybe 553.3. I think the driving factor is whether it's congenital or not........

I agree with Rebecca, the definition is:
Anterior hernias of the foramina of Morgagni are very rare, result from failure of fusion of the septum transversum with the body wall, and usually present later in life.
We cannot assume this is congenital unless documented therefore I would go with 553.3. Hope this helps!
