Abstract

An obturator hernia is a very rare condition that occurs in elderly debilitated women and its nonspecific symptoms delay the diagnosis. Computed tomography is a useful tool for the early diagnosis of an obturator hernia. Previous studies report that bilateral obturator hernias comprise approximately 6% of all obturator hernias is 6%. To the best of our knowledge, there is no reported case of a contralateral obturator hernia immediately after a herniorrhaphy. We report a case of contralateral obturator hernia thst occurred immediately after a right obturator herniorrhaphy.
