Abstract

Strangulated lumbar hernia is a very rare condition, with no more than 30 cases reported in the literature so far. Therefore, there is no specific management guideline and the diagnosis remains difficult. By reporting the case of a Senegalese male patient who had a preoperative diagnosis of strangulated lumbar hernia, we aim to discuss the diagnosis and therapeutic modalities of this rare entity, which is often misdiagnosed.
