Abstract

We present a case of a young man who fell off his motorbike 2 days before presentation to the hospital with a complaint of gastrointestinal upset and abdominal pain. Contrast-enhanced CT of the abdomen and pelvis demonstrated a right-sided traumatic spigelian hernia and an ascending colon injury necessitating operative repair of both.
