Abstract: We report a case in which a giant Spigelian hernia presented with severe, persistent abdominal pain in a 62- year-old super-obese woman with a history of total abdominal hysterectomy-bilateral salpingo-oopherectomy at the age of 40 years for benign neoplasia, who later underwent open hernia repair (maximal diameter of the hernia sac: 21 cm) because of the development of compartment syndrome. Afterward, although a large incarcerated hernia disease was found, the sac removal was technically difficult and an open procedure was carried out, with double-mesh placement. No complications were recorded during the post-operative course. We report a difficult issue related to the diagnosis and management of this pathology, underlining the complete surgical repair to avoid hernia recurrence.

Afterward, although a large incarcerated hernia disease was found, the sac removal was technically difficult and an open procedure was carried out, with double-mesh placement. No complications were recorded during the post-operative course. We report a difficult issue related to the diagnosis and management of this pathology, underlining the complete surgical repair to avoid hernia recurrence.
