Clinical History:

A 61-year-old woman with a previous history of right side lumbar herniorrhaphy was referred to our clinic for a diagnostic ultrasound exam. She had noticed a bulging in the right flank, associated with local pain 4 months previously. The clinical examination revealed a palpable lump more pronounced in standing position on the right flank upper quadrant. A surgical scar could be seen just below the examined site.
