The aim of this study was to review patient’s records with respect to CT scan findings, and surgical treatment. Methods: From April 2017 to September 2018, two female patients diagnosed as lumbar hernia by computed tomography scan were admitted into hospital. The medical records were reviewed with respect to findings of CT scan and the outcomes of operation. Results: CT scans demonstrate the hernias lie in the left superior lumbar triangle and with adipose tissue herniation.
