You can get a case replacement kit (various on google or ebay) it can be a bit tricky and you need a special hex (i think screwdriver) to do it but i know people who have done it ok. :)

The phat DS is fairly easy to do.
The lite is quite tricky.

I have repaired three so far, as above poster says, buy case from Dealextreme or Focalprice .You will also need a pair of screwdrivers (also Dealextreme or Focalprice) , it can be fiddly but take your time & be careful, it can be done.
Instructions here...http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=vRzTgfo2PsM&feature=PlayList&p=B4463E9816BAE6C0&playnext=1&index=14
You will need both screwdrivers on this page http://www.focalprice.com/goods.aspx?startnum=96&classid=23&Action=&ActionShow=
