Many eminent anatomists originally described abdominal hernias, some of which are still named after the original authors. In this article, the radiologic features of abdominal hernias are reviewed as imaged on x-ray, ultrasound, multidetector computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. Recognition of the typical appearance of various types of abdominal hernias and associated adverse features such as bowel obstruction, perforation, strangulation, or volvulus formation can help in formulating an accurate diagnosis. A short biography of the scientists associated with eponymous hernias and their other important scientific contributions are also described.
