Lumbar hernias of the lateroposterior abdominal wall have a low prevalence, being described in the scientific literature as sporadic cases or short series. Initially, they manifest as a painless tumor that can be confused with other more frequent pathologies such as soft-tissue tumors, lipomas, hematomas, or abscesses. We present the case of a 72-year-old female patient who, after removal of a lumbar lipoma by dermatology, was referred to our clinic for recurrence of tumor. An ultrasound scan showed a recurrence of the lipoma. The anamnesis and physical examination suggested lumbar hernia. Computerized axial tomography scan confirmed the clinical diagnosis, and surgery was indicated.
