Abstract

The authors report a case of a lateral chest wall lung hernia, which was presumably congenital. Lung herniations are extremely rare, and congenital herniation of the lung through an apparently intact thoracic cage has not yet been reported. The hernia was repaired by the interposition of a polypropylene mesh. The literature of this rare condition is briefly reviewed.
