Dr. Hemamalini Rajamanikkam
Abstract: Femoral hernia is the third most common type of primary hernias. It accounts for about 20 percent of hernias in women and 5percent in men. It clinically may mimic inguinal hernia especially when it escapes through saphenous opening into loose areolar tissue, it assumes shape of retort and its bulbous extremity may be above the inguinal ligament. We report a case of irreducible femoral hernia in a male diagnosed intraoperatively.
