In 120 adults (87 men, 33 women) with suspicion of a hernia but with normal physical examination, herniography disclosed 125 positive findings correlated with the clinical manifestations. There were no false positive or false negative herniographic diagnoses among 25 patients who underwent surgery. Herniography is a useful examination to evaluate patients with an uncertain or normal physical examination and with clinical manifestations suggestive for hernia. This relatively simple technique and the use of a non-ionic contrast medium are well tolerated.
