A Spigelian hernia is a lateral ventral abdominal hernia that occurs with protrusion of a viscus or preperitoneal fat through a defect in the aponeurotic layer between the lateral edges of the rectus abdominis medially and the semilunar line laterally. Spigelian hernias are relatively uncommon, and represent only 2% of all abdominal hernias. Due to their overall rarity and evasive presentation, Spigelian hernias and their associated complications are not well described in literature. We report here a rare presentation of a Spigelian hernia with large and small bowel strangulated portion in hernia sac, necessitating emergent laparotomy with bowel resection and repair of the hernia defect
