Internal hernia refers to the protrusion of an abdominal viscus through the peritoneum or mesentery into a compartment within the abdominal cavity and represents an uncommon cause of bowel obstruction. Six main types of internal herniation have been described, which are paraduodenal, foramen of Winslow, transmesenteric, paracaecal, intersigmoid and paravesical. Of these, protrusion through the foramen of Winslow is rare and accounts only for approximately 8% of all internal herniae. Various organs have hitherto been found to herniate through this foramen. We present a case of internal herniation through the foramen of Winslow that was identified by CT imaging. It was treated with a reduction at laparotomy and subsequent right hemicolectomy.
