Abstract
Anomalous presence of fully developed female reproductive organs in the inguinal canal is extremely rare. But, early recognition and reduction of an ovary is thought to be important to prevent strangulation of the hernia and necrosis of the ovary. Ultrasound scan diagnose positively the presence of ovaries in the majority of cases. So we advise ultrasound scan must be performed routinely in those female with inguinal hernia. We experienced a case of inguinal hernia of ovary and fallopian tube in a fully developed adult woman. So we present it with a brief review of literature.
Key Words: Inguinal hernia of ovary and tube
