A 78-year-old woman visited our hospital after developing severe abdominal pain and upper abdominal swelling. An emergency operation was performed following a diagnosis of linea alba hernia with impaction of the falciform ligament of the liver as observed on CT findings. A defect of about 30 mm in diameter was observed in the linea alba, and preperitoneal adipose tissue and the falciform ligament of the liver prolapsed from the location of the defect and were impacted. We resolved the impaction of the falciform ligament of the liver by dissecting it, and we resected the preperitoneal adipose tissue. Simple closure was performed to correct the hernia orifice because the surrounding tissue was relatively rigid and the tension was mild. The patient's condition improved, and she was discharged on the 5th postoperative day.
