Incarcerated abdominal wall hernias may contain a variety of contents, but very rarely contains the gallbladder. This rare diagnosis is often not considered and, when diagnosed, has a different management approach. The experience of the small number of case reports have yet to be collected and summarised.

Case presentation

We report a presentation and management of an 85 year old Caucasian female with a gallbladder hernia into a parastomal defect, and outline the operative management.


Incarcerated gallbladder hernia is an extremely unusual condition, best diagnosed by CT scan. Management should involve operative reduction, cholecystectomy and consideration of repair of the defect.
