Traumatic abdominal wall hernias (TAWHs) are relatively uncommon entities. Common mechanisms that predispose to such hernias include motor vehicle accidents, seat belt injuries, fall from height, handlebar injuries, and bullfighting. Bullhorn injury leading to TAWHs is an uncommon mechanism. We report here one such patient who was managed by laparoscopic transperitoneal anatomical repair of the defect using polypropylene suture. The patient recovered well without any complication and is being followed up. Such small defects can be managed laparoscopically and tissue-only repair using a nonabsorbable suture is a feasible option. Our case is the first reported case of bullhorn-injury associated traumatic hernia managed laparoscopically and first reported case of TAWH in an adult which was managed by laparoscopic sutured tissue-only repair.
