Computed tomography (CT) is the imaging modality of choice for the demonstration of intercostal lung herniation. The use of forced expiration and Valsalva's manouevre during CT scanning has been recommended in selected cases. We report a case of intercostal lung herniation, demonstrated only on coughing on spiral CT.
