Caption: Umbilical hernia. A hernia occurs when an organ, such as a loop of the intestine, protrudes from a weak area in the abdominal wall. An umbilical hernia occurs when weakened muscles of the abdominal wall allow the intestines to protrude into the navel. This is an incarcerated hernia, one that does not return into the abdomen when pushed in. This one also displays caput medusa, engorged superficial epigastric veins. The patient also has cirrhosis (poor liver function).
