Abstract

Introduction: Giant ventral hernia immediately after vaginal twin delivery is a rare event and the management is unclear. Case presentation: A 28-year-old primiparous woman had a spontaneous vaginal preterm twin delivery at gestational age 36 weeks and 5 days, followed by a giant ventral hernia with severe pain. She had a single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy two years earlier. She was closely monitored with transfusion and pain control, and improved spontaneously without emergency surgery. Conclusion: Immediately after vaginal twin delivery, a giant ventral hernia was detected in a 28-year-old primiparous woman who had a history of single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Fortunately, the hernia resolved spontaneously without the need for emergency surgery.
