In contrast to the Caucasian child, umbilical hernia can be complicated in 18.5% of black subjects. In the literature, the main complications described are hernial strangulation and engorgement, which reflect incarceration of the small intestine or omentum through the hernia. Our observation describes a rare complication which is evisceration on umbilical hernia by impalement. This is a 12-year-old female patient with a large umbilical hernia from birth, received at 3 hours of a playful accident at home. Emergency surgical exploration by subumbilical arched approach, ligation and section of the infarcted omentum; longitudinal aponeurography by X-stitches and an umbilical plasty were performed. Progressive feeding was started the next day and discharge was allowed on the third day. The patient received regular care and follow-up. The evolution was unremarkable after the postoperative setback of one month.
