Dr. U. D. Babayo, Dr. U. S. Bello, Dr. B. S. Mohammed

This is a case of an unorthodox attempt at treating an inguinal hernia with a hot metal by a traditional healer associated with development of multiple hypertrophic scars with no resolution of symptom as a result. Hernia repair with local anaesthesia was ultimately done in the hospital. Inguinal hernia repair is the most common surgery in elective general surgery practice. This report highlights the problem of unorthodox practice of hernia repair in this modern era and calls for more campaign against such.
