Abstract

Spigelian hernia (SH) is a rare variety of anterior abdominal wall hernias in which the defect is lateral to the rectus abdominis muscle. It is considered congenital in children and usually contains an ipsilateral undescended testis (UDT) in boys. We report our experience of managing a SH with UDT in a nine months old boy. Laparoscopic assisted hernia repair and primary orchidopexy were done successfully. Paediatric surgeons should be familiar with the presentation and management of this rare variety of hernias in children.
