Incarcerated inguinal hernia is a common diagnosis in patients presenting with a painful and non-reducible groin mass. Although the diagnosis is usually made by physical examination, the content of the hernia sac and the extent of the following operation may vary. The usual finding is a segment of small bowel and less commonly large bowel. However, an unusually large number of pathological processes have been recorded in literature, which also present in this manner. Except in sliding hernia, the sigmoid colon is uncommonly found in an inguinal hernia, especially on the right side. We present an extremely rare case of an incarcerated right inguinal hernia containing the sigmoid colon and review relevant literature.
