Özet

Infantile umbilical hernia is a clinically benign condition that resolves spontaneously in majority of cases without surgical treatment. Complications like rupture are exceptionally rare. This report presents a previously healthy 8-month old infant who had spontaneous umbilical hernia rupture with evisceration and identifies the clinical features associated with this complication by including a review of previously reported cases.
