Abstract Cases of herniated bladder diverticulae causing inguinoscrotal hernias are rare, and there are 19 described in the English literature. We describe the case of a 64-year-old Caucasian man with a huge bladder diverticulum that herniated into his scrotum. The original diagnosis was that of inguinoscrotal hernia containing bowel contents. Radiological investigations revealed a urological cause, and he underwent a successful diverticulectomy. It is important to recognize that inguinoscrotal hernias can have urological origins, 1-4\% being the reported figure. Clinical examination can lead to a general surgical diagnosis before further radiological investigations confirm the nature of the hernia. They prove difficult to both diagnose and surgically correct. Published by Oxford University Press and JSCR Publishing Ltd. All rights reserved. © The Author 2013.
