Traumatic abdominal wall hernia is a rare entity, and an uncommon type of abdominal wall hernia as far as the etiology is concerned. It is caused by blunt trauma and disrupts the fascial layers, but does not disrupt the elastic skin. In this study, we report the case of a 60-year-old female, diagnosed with traumatic abdominal wall hernia with delayed presentation. In this case, herniation of the bowels was present through the defect in the left iliac region. She was surgically well-managed. During the follow-up of 1 year, there was no recurrence. In the Western medical literature, only a few cases have been reported, especially with intra-abdominal injuries. Confusion still exists in the management of such a disease as to whether to treat the condition at an early or later stage.
