Infantile Inguinal Hernia Containing Uterus and Ovaries: A Rare Case Report

Author(s): Awatif M Omer*

Abstract

An inguinal hernia is a common congenital abnormality in infants younger than one year; however, hernias containing the uterus are an extremely rare condition. This is a case report of a two-month, 13-day-old female baby with right inguinal swelling. A non-reducible inguinal hernia containing the uterus and ovaries was diagnosed radiologically using ultrasound. The ultrasound images showed a hernial sac containing the reproductive organs, with a 7 mm measurement for the neck of the canal through which the uterus and ovaries passed. Surgical intervention and repair were performed. Follow-up after one year is recommended.
