Abstract

Superior lumbar hernia (Grynfeltt hernia) is an uncommon variety of abdominal wall defect. There are three types of lumbar hernia: congenital, acquired, and incisional hernias. Diagnosis depends largely on the capacity for clinical suspicion, and confirmation is based on imaging tests. We report a case of an acquired lumbar hernia diagnosed by computed tomography (CT), which was treated successfully at our institution.
