Inferior lumbar hernia

An inferior lumbar hernia (also known as a Petit hernia) is a type of lumbar hernia, less common than the superior lumbar hernia (or Grynfeltt-Lesshaft hernia). 

It occurs through the inferior lumbar triangle (of Petit). 

Other than location, superior and inferior lumbar hernias have much in common and are thus discussed together : see lumbar hernias.
