Strangulated umbilical hernia containing vermiform appendix: About a case report from Dakar

Umbilical hernia (UH) is the most common pathology of the anterior wall of the abdomen in children in our regions. Spontaneous closure is possible with growth but in most cases the defect persists and exposes to complications such as strangulation especially among black race. In these strangled forms, the content is almost always the small intestine or epiploon. We describe through this observation a rare case of strangulation of an UH where the hernia sac contained the vermiform appendage.
