We report a case of retrocecal hernia successfully diagnosed by CT. A 99-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital because of abdominal pain. CT showed an incarcerated small intestinal loop behind the cecum that was deviated anteriorly. Operative findings revealed that the ileum was incarcerated into a retrocecal cavity. Although retrocecal hernia is rare and accurate preoperative diagnosis is difficult cases diagnosed by CT are increasing. It is important to be aware of the distinctive CT findings of retrocecal hernia.
