ABSTRACT
We present a rarest exposure of an untreated indirect inguinal hernia in a seventy year old formalin fixed male cadaver. Even though inguinal hernia is a common finding, the challenge lies in its surgical reduction. Present report not only emphasizes on the content of the hernia sac but also on the morphological and structural alterations occurring in the abdominal cavity to accommodate a longstanding, untreated, non-obstructed inguinal hernia.

Key Words: Oblique Hernia; Indirect Inguinal hernia; Inguinoscrotal Hernia
