Abstract

Lung herniation is an uncommon entity which was fully classified in 1845 after the study of several case reports. Acquired lung hernia, especially traumatic, is the most common etiology. In the absence of clear guidelines, management of lung hernia is made in a case-by-case basis. We present an asymptomatic middle lobe hernia perceptible on physical examination, but diagnosed initially by imaging studies. Patient medical history included a blunt bull trauma fourteen years before.
