Abstract

We report a rare case of recurrent right inguinal hernia with bladder diverticulum incarcerated in a 63 years old male. Patient complained of painful swelling in inguinoscrotal region associated with urinary discomfort. Preoperatively diagnosis was made possible by ultrasound and urography imaging. Surgical treatment was achieved, by infra-umbilical incision, a reduction of the herniated and fixed diverticulum followed by a mesh repair of the wall defect. Patient was discharged five days after surgery and became free of symptomatology soon after surgical procedure. Bladder diverticulum involvement in a direct inguinal hernia is rare finding and define a potential pitfall for surgeon if not diagnosed preoperatively. There are no other cases of incarcerated bladder diverticulum incarcerated in a recurrent inguinal hernia described in Literature. KEY WORDS: Bladder diverticulum, Bladder hernia, Inguinal hernia.
