Abstract

We report a first case of lumbar herniation of a kidney after laparoscopic adrenalectomy in a patient with Cushing's syndrome. A 59-year-old woman underwent separate laparoscopic adrenalectomies for right adrenal Cushing's syndrome and left primary aldosteronism. She consulted our department with a 6-month history of intermittent left back pain, starting 8 months after the second operation. Magnetic resonance imaging showed herniation of the left kidney through a defect of the lumbodorsal fascia.
