The aim of the present study is to report the repair of AIH in a male patient. The AIH in a 56-year-old male was repaired with the laparoscopic procedure; the patient characteristics and repair details were described. The computed tomography scan revealed an intercostal hernia containing omentum between the 9th rib and 10th rib. The laparoscopic repair with synthetic mesh was successfully performed, and the patients were absent of symptoms at 8-month follow-up. There is no consensus on the best treatment of AIH, tension-free prosthetic repair is recommended, and the laparoscopic approach has several advantages for AIH repair.
