Abstract: A spigelian hernia is an uncommon entity. The diagnosis and location of this disorder often is difficult. We present a case in which the hernia could not be located at the time of operation, despite exploration. Laparoscopy performed subsequently enabled location and repair of the hernia under direct visualization, with good results. Laparoscopy is advocated as an adjunct to the diagnosis and treatment of spigelian hernia.
