Abstract


Blunt trauma to the abdominal wall can cause a hernia, quite a rare condition. Once diagnosed, it should be repaired, because any delay in the management results in an increase in morbidity and mortality. We report a case of a 41 year old female that developed Traumatic Abdominal Wall Hernia in the right upper quadrant following a Road Traffic Accident. She was diagnosed one month later by physical examination which was proved by a Computed Tomography scan of the abdomen. An open surgical repair with mesh was done, and the post-operative course was uneventful.
