Abstract

Perineal hernias are rare, protruding through a defect, congenital or acquired, of the pelvic floor musculature with intraperitoneal or extraperitoneal content. Anatomically they can be classified as anterior and posterior based on the position relative to the superficial transverse perineal muscle. We present a case of a rare primary posterior perineal hernia that was identified incidentally on computed tomography.
