Right paraduodenal hernia usually occurs in setting of nonrotated small bowel, when small bowel herniates through Waldeyer's fossa (a defect in the first part of jejunal mesentery). It lies behind the superior mesenteric artery and inferior to the transverse colon or third portion of duodenum. We studied two cases of right paraduodenal hernia, an incomplete rotation, and nonrotation of small bowel, respectively, and describe CT abdomen signs, which can give a preoperative diagnosis.
