Obturator hernia is a rare variety of pelvic hernia. The diagnosis frequently is delayed and may be accompanied by dehydration, acute abdominal distress and small bowel strangulation. We report a case of totally extraperitoneal repair of obturator hernia with partial intestinal obstruction. An eighty-two-year old female with intermittent abdominal pain was diagnosed with obturator hernia with partial intestinal obstruction. We did total extraperitoneal laparoscopic repair of the obturator hernia with polypropylene mesh. Total extraperitoneal laparoscopic repair for obturator hernia is a safe and effective treatment.
