Mariska Hargitay Returns to Work at SVU


Mariska Hargitay is back at work, two weeks after suffering a collapsed lung.


Law & Order: SVU's foxy detective was suffering from pneumothorax (a partially collapsed lung). She returned to work Monday afternoon, according to People.


Hargitay's condition can be caused by a number of things, including a build-up of air between the lung and the chest wall, a chest injury, a broken rib - or without injury at all. She had been on vacation when the ailment struck.


Hargitay was nominated for both a Golden Globe and a SAG award for her portrayal of Det. Olivia Benson, but did not attend either event.

Yay! Without this tomboy detective, the show would be a mess! I love her role in SVU. Hopefully her condition wasn't too major and i hope it doesn't happen again! She has a lot of nominations too bad she missed it. Also the new episode "Snatched" didn't have her talking a lot, probably because of the collapsed lung. The new episode was all shining on her partner.
