Abstract

Obturator hernia is a type of external abdominal hernia. Site of herniation is the obturator canal, which is the superolateral aspect of the obturator foramen. The herniation sac exits the pelvis near the obturator nerve and vessels . Herniated loops of small bowel extend between the pectineus and obturator muscles. In this report, we present a case of obstructed obturator hernia.
