Abstract

In a Richter's hernia, only part of the anti-mesenteric border of the bowel is incarcerated within the underlying defect. We report three cases presenting between 18 days and 11 years following proctectomy. As all patients had functioning stomas a high index of suspicion is necessary to avoid a delay in diagnosis.
