Özet

Lumbar hernias are rare and diagnostically challenging for surgeons. We present the case of a middle-aged patient who presented with swelling in the left back. Subcutaneous lipoma was included in the differential diagnosis. Following diagnostic studies, computed tomography confirmed left lumbar hernia. Elective surgery was performed, and the results revealed Petit's hernia. The hernia was repaired with mesh.
