 en Acute Lumbar Hernia: A Case Report
Albroumi, Said & Razek, Yasser A.


Background: Lumbar hernia is a rare condition with less than 300 cases reported in the literature before 1980 and about another 86 patient’s conditions were discussed during last thirty years.
Case presentation: We report a 79-year old female patient who presented with attacks of repeated vomiting associated with mild epigastric pain and followed by appearance of right flank swelling. Right lumbar hernia was diagnosed by CT abdomen. She underwent repair after inversion of the sac and had a smooth postoperative course.
Conclusion: Lumbar hernias are rare cases, but should be pursued in diagnosis and treated rapidly because of the high rate of incarceration
