Abstract

We herein report two female cases, aged 1 and 1.5 months, of inguinal sliding hernias containing the uterus, fallopian tube, and ovary. The diagnosis of inguinal hernia with uterus and uterine adnexa was highly suspected preoperatively by ultrasonography and was confirmed during surgical correction. Freeing the attachment of fallopian tube and uterus from the sac and with reduction of the uterus, ovary, and fallopian tube back to the peritoneal cavity, high ligation of the hernia sac was performed in these cases. In conclusion, the hernia sac containing fallopian tube, ovary, and uterus in the female is very rare. We present our experience of treatment with these rare cases and suggest that sonography be performed routinely in female infants with an inguinal hernia containing a palpable movable mass.
