Paraduodenal hernia is a rare cause of small bowel obstruction. It is a congenital anomaly and is more common in the left side. An early diagnosis can reduce the risk of acute complications. We present here a case of a left paraduodenal hernia in a 30 year-old patient with a history of chronic intermittent abdominal pain presenting with small bowel obstruction. We show that laparoscopic surgery is feasible and effective for treatment of paraduodenal hernias, including in emergency situations. Furthermore, we demonstrate and emphasize that the bowel must be sutured to the defect to prevent recurrence of the hernia.
