• A patient with an unusual type of internal hernia was treated successfully. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of a hernia emanating through the gastrohepatic ligament that resulted in gastric outlet obstruction. It is even more remarkable because, although the small bowel was the herniated viscus, the symptoms were due to obstruction of the stomach rather than obstruction of the small bowel.
