Background

 

An incarcerated external hernia is one of the most common and important diseases encountered in patients with an acute abdomen. Since this condition affects the indications for surgery, an accurate diagnosis is necessary. In addition to physical findings, computed tomography (CT) examinations are useful during diagnosis. However, diagnosis can often be difficult in cases exhibiting uncommon hernia contents, locations, or forms. Several conditions are rare but should be recognizable by radiologists. Moreover, many diseases can exhibit similar CT findings, and this should be kept in mind to avoid mistakes when making crucial decisions.
