Paraduodenal hernia (PDH), also called mesocolic hernia, is a rare congenital anomaly. However, it accounts for up to 53% of all internal hernias, but they cause only 0.2%–0.9% of all cases of intestinal obstruction. Clinical findings are often indetermined. Computerized tomography is usually diagnostic; however, the diagnosis is often made intraoperative. PDH carries the risk of morbidity and mortality due to incarceration, leading to bowel obstruction and strangulation if not treated, that is why the patient should be repaired surgically not conservatively when the diagnosis is made. Here, we present a case of left-sided PDH with low-grade partial bowel obstruction, who underwent laparoscopic exploration and reduction of small bowel content that founded to be healthy and viable.
