Abstract

Spiegelian hernias account for less than 1% of all hernias diagnosed in the adult population. The most important factors in the proper diagnostic process are detailed physical examination combined with imaging procedures. Two cases of Spiegelian hernias are presented. The anatomical background of the pathology, as well as diagnostic procedures and surgical treatment, is discussed.
