|Abdominal wall lesions often mimic intra-abdominal conditions and frequently present as palpable masses. The purpose of this presentation is to provide an overview of the sonographic appearances of different abdominal wall lesions. Ultrasonography is a good method – without x-ray, noninvassive and relatively cheap. The most common abdominal wall lesions are hernias. Localized fluid collections in the abdominal wall (seromas, hematomas and abscesses) can be well visualized. More infrequently, tumors or vascular lesions can be identified in the abdominal wall.
