Introduction: Internal hernias are neglected, life threatening and generally mismanaged surgical pathologies. They may be either acquired or congenital. The mortality and morbidity rates differ between the types and unfortunately reports investigating them are very rare, with limited number of patients, and mostly case reports. In this one of the largest series of the literature, we aimed to evaluate the resemblances and the differences between these two types.
