The paraesophageal hernia (PHE) affects 5-10% of patients with hiatal hernia, most of which is usually small. The recommendation is to treat the PHE before developing into incarceration or strangulation, which can be devastating if not treated in time. The treatment with successful one case of the PHE incarcerated IV type, on the cholecystectomy postoperative justifies this report.
