Richter's hernia is defined as a type of hernia in which only part of the circumference of the antimesenteric border of a bowel wall is incarcerated within the hernia sac. This is discrete from other types of abdominal hernias in that only one intestinal wall protrudes through the defect, such that the lumen of the intestine is incompletely contained in the defect, while the rest remains in the peritoneal cavity. Due to the fact that, clinical presentation of Richter’s hernias is variable and it may be hard to diagnose immediately and high suspicion is also required for correct diagnose and promptly remediation. In this report, we present a case of Richter’s hernia after gynecological laparoscopic procedure occurring in a 62 year-old female,in order to warn surgeons and avoid similar complications.
