Roberta Iacona, Neophytos United Kingdom, Hannah Missfelder-Lobos and Georgina Malakounides

Congenital Hernia of the cord is an uncommon abdominal wall defect anatomically and embriologically considered as a different entity from Gastroschisis and Omphalocoele with an estimated incidence of 1:5000. Its content can be various including: small and large bowel, gallbladder, liver lobes and omphalo-mesenteric remnants. Here we report the first case of a wandering spleen incarcerated within the congenital hernia of the cord in order to highlight the importance of the surgical exploration to prevent solid organs injury.
