Abstract Lumbar hernias, namely transiliac hernias, are not frequent events and are almost always associated with bone graft harvesting from the iliac crest. We describe a case of transiliac hernia 10 years after bone graft harvest, the patient presenting with right colon incarceration. Diagnosis was made by CT scan. The hernia was repaired with a composite polypropylene-PTFE mesh (Bard(®)). Copyright © 2013 Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved.
