Spontaneous rupture of an abdominal hernia is rare and usually occurs in incisional or recurrent groin hernia. The hernial contents can be covered primarily by mesh repair if the general condition of the patient and local condition of the operative site allows it or it can be covered by skin followed by delayed mesh repair. We report a case of spontaneous rupture of incisional hernia with transection of small bowel and perforation in a 60-year-old woman who had developed hernia following a cesarean operation and was managed by resection and end-to-end anastomosis and herniorrhaphy.
