Abstract :

Internal abdominal hernias are infrequent cause of intestinal obstruction in children. In children usual causes of obstruction are intussusceptions, congenital band ligation, malrotation and foreign bodies. Here we report a case of mesosigmoid hernia in a 10 year old child, after he was presented with complaint of abdominal pain of 2 days duration. He was admitted to our hospital and was x-rayed and put on conservative management. But the patient condition was worsened and exploratory laparotomy was done and segment of mid ileum was herniated through sigmoid mesocolon on the left lateral side. Sac was opened and the hernia was reduced but was gangrenous so we did resection and end to end anastomosis and the hernia sac was repaired.
