Postural Intercostal Herniation Of A Skeletal Muscle Hemangioma
A young Indian female presented to us with a reducible swelling in anterior chest wall which appeared only on forward flexion. The postural association made it a unique presentation. The reducible nature made us suspect lung herniation, however, clinical examination made it unlikely. Subsequent imaging revealed spontaneous intercostal herniation of a skeletal muscle hemangioma, which is a rare occurrence. The patient was explained the nature of the pathology and managed conservatively. To our knowledge, this is the first case of its kind.
