"Mariska Hargitay has been sidelined with a pneumothorax (a partially collapsed lung)," the rep says.
In spite of her condition, the 44-year-old actress "will appear in all episodes for the rest of the season of Law & Order: SVU," the rep says.
According to a source, the actress has been on vacation and her injury did not occur on the set of her show.
Hargitay was nominated for a Golden Globe for best actress in a television drama, but did not attend Sunday's ceremony.
Access Hollywood was first to report the news.
