Abstract

Trauma-related spigelian hernia is a rare event that has been reported only sporadically. Because of its rare nature and nonspecific physical findings, its diagnosis is difficult. This hernia most commonly presents at the level of the semicircular line known as the arcuate line. A 70-year-old man was admitted after overturn of his cultivator. A scratch wound surrounding a cutaneous sign of the cultivator handlebar impact was evident on his right upper abdominal wall. Trauma-related spigelian hernia occurred in the site of the handlebar impact. We report this cases of trauma-related spigelian hernia that was treated by primary repair with a brief review of the literature.
