Hernia. Muscle hernia in the lower leg of a 34- year-old man. A hernia is the protrusion of an organ or tissue through an abnormal opening. In this case muscle is protruding through the connective tissue that normally surrounds it. A previous rugby injury weakened the connective tissue and lead to the hernia. Treatment is with surgery to close the abnormal opening.
