Paraduodenal hernia is a rare condition which constitutes a diagnostic challenge. Operative repair is mandatory with the laparoscopic approach gaining popularity in recent years.
We report a case of a 15-year-old female with a 2-year history of recurrent abdominal pain. After diagnosis of left paraduodenal hernia, the patient underwent laparoscopic exploration and repair.
Using 3 mm instruments, the incarcerated bowel was gently reduced and the hernia orifice was closed with a running suture. The patient continues to be asymptomatic after a 2‑year follow-up.
Minilaparoscopic repair of a paraduodenal hernia is safe and feasible regardless of age and size of the patient.
