ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND

Lumbar Hernia is an uncommon occurrence. It may occur through superior or inferior lumbar triangle. Hernia through superior lumbar triangle is more common. Treatment of lumbar hernia is essentially surgical with mesh repair, which may be done by open or laparoscopic techniques. Surgical management requires skill and expertise. We report a case of Lumbar Hernia through superior triangle (Grynfeltt’s). A 57 years old lean and thin patient presented with swelling in left loin on coughing. Diagnosis was confirmed by ultrasonography. Hernia was repaired by on-lay application of polypropylene mesh. Patient was asymptomatic at follow-ups.
