A hernia due to an imperfect closure or weakness of the umbilical ring. It appears as a skin-covered protrusion at the umbilicus during crying, coughing, or straining. The hernia generally consists of omentum or SMALL INTESTINE. The vast majority of umbilical hernias are congenital but can be acquired due to severe abdominal distention.
