Abstract Giant inguinal herniae present a major challenge in management. This case details clinical features of an enormous inguinoscrotal hernia associated with septic gangrene and elephantiasis of the scrotum. Two initial operations were required for control of sepsis, followed by a two-staged hernial repair, involving a total colectomy and a subsequent neoscrotal repair. The problems of loss of domain within the abdominal cavity and the special features presented by this case are discussed.
