Abdominal hernia

A hernia is technically defined as the external or internal protrusion of a part of the body from its natural cavity. Although there are cerebral hernias, diaphragmatic, hiatal or other abdominopelvic sites, the term usually refers to the abdominal wall and to external presentations. Hernias may also be intraparietal in the abdominal walls. They occur in both children and adults, and may arise in the groin (inguinal or crural), navel, anterior abdomen, pelvis or lumbar.
