A muscle hernia of the lower extremity can occur when the overlying fascia has become weakened. Often it is
diagnosed clinically as a soft bulge on active movement and can be confirmed by ultrasound or MRI. If conservative
treatment is not effective, surgical fascial reinforcement is required for either cosmetic reasons or clinically
symptomatic patients. We are presenting a case of symptomatic, bilateral lower extremity hernias.
