Nearly 28% of pediatric Spigelian hernias reported in the literature are associated with ipsilateral cryptorchidism. However, the pathogenetic relationship between the two has not been satisfactorily explained in the past. This paper describes a male neonate born with cryptorchidism and imperforate anus. Anal stenosis following the treatment of imperforate anus had let to the development of multiple hernias including Spigelian hernia on the right side. Surgical exploration revealed the right…

TLDR
There is the necessity for a thorough investigation of the origin of the Spigelian hernia, as such cases are extremely rare in the literature and may constitute a new syndrome.

TLDR
The aim of this study was to analyse the pathogenetic factors of paediatric Spigelian hernias in infants who had undergone surgical repair of a Sp Nigelian hernia from 1950 to 2006 to suggest a congenital cause.
