Avulsion and retraction of the abdominal wall musculature from the iliac crest with surrounding soft tissue swelling and haemorrhage. Minor but definite herniation of fat and right colon though the defect. No fracture.
An unusual injury in adults. In children it can lead to iliac apophyseal avulsion and separation.
