Small bowel obstruction caused by congenital mesocolic hernia: case report.

Author information

  • 1Department of Pediatric Surgery, H├┤pital Nord, Marseille, France.


Transmesocolic hernias are extremely rare. Their exact incidence is still unknown. A strangulated hernia through a mesocolic opening is a rare operative finding. Preoperative diagnosis still is difficult in spite of imaging techniques currently available. This is the case of a 4-month-old boy with transmesocolic internal hernia and coincident intestinal malrotation and volvulus of small bowel.
