Congenital lumbar hernia is rare in infancy and childhood, and its association with the lumbocostovertebral syndrome is even more unusual. Only 20 cases have been reported in the English literature. We present the case of a child with multiple costovertebral anomalies, undescended testis, and lateral abdominal wall hernia that is not within the anatomical boundaries of traditional lumbar hernias.
