ABSTRACT
Internal hernia is a rare and often overlooked cause of small bowel obstruction. We report a case of internal hernia with an orifice composed of epiploic fat, successfully diagnosed and treated by single-incision laparoscopic surgery. This is the second report of this type of internal hernia and the first reported case addressed laparoscopically. Although the use of laparoscopy for the treatment of small bowel obstruction is not firmly established today, it may be beneficial for both its diagnostic value and as a less invasive treatment.
