Abstract

A rare case is presented of traumatic subcutaneous rupture of the rectus abdominis with ventral herniation and decollement of the jejunum and transverse colon. Irreversible ischemia of the small bowel had occurred following a large mesenteric avulsion. Computed tomographic scanning detected the parietal defect and identified the herniating viscera.
