INTRODUCTION: Spontaneous intercostal lung herniation is a very rare condition. We present an unusual case of a lateral chest wall intercostal lung herniation in an obese male smoker. In our patient, conservative therapy was recommended, although reliance on narcotic pain medication may be an argument for surgical intervention in the future.
