Abstract Incisional hernia is a fairly common problem in India, although there is a paucity of data from the region. The commonly implicated operations in the aetiology of incisional hernia in our setup are lower segment cesarean sections and surgery for peritonitis. Incisional hernia following iliac bone grafting is rare, despite the frequency of performance of the procedure. Two patients with incisional hernia arising from the donor site of iliac bone grafting were seen in our department over the last year. They underwent mesh hernioplasty using polypropylene mesh that was placed as an onlay. Both the patients are presently well on follow-up, with no recurrence of the hernia. Mesh hernioplasty of hernia following iliac bone grafting gives good results and may be considered the method of choice of repair of this uncommon type of hernia.
