A 5-year-old girl with blunt trauma to the abdomen and a 3-month-old boy after abdominal surgery were found to have a spigelian hernia. The pathogenesis of these rare hernias is discussed. Our first case is the third recorded traumatic spigelian hernia occuring in a child, and the second is the first postoperative case described after abdominal repair of a Bochdalek hernia.
