Hepatic herniation through an incisional anterolateral abdominal wall hernia is an extremely rare condition. Here, we are reporting a case of hepatic herniation through the anterolateral abdominal wall which had been managed conservatively in a 75-year-old female patient. In addition, we are presenting a brief summary of all previously indexed reported cases to help other surgeons in managing similar rare cases the optimal way.
