Abstract We present a case of a long-standing, giant inguinoscrotal hernia extending to the patient's knees, complicated by intestinal obstruction. Initial management involved conservative treatment of the intestinal obstruction and optimising the patient's general condition. Surgical treatment included debulking the contents of the hernia sac by performing a right hemicolectomy and a small bowel resection, and reconstruction of the abdominal wall using Marlex mesh and a tensor fasciae latae flap. Although abdominal wall reconstruction for massive ventral or incisional herniae is well reported, inguinoscrotal herniae of this magnitude are much rarer and pose additional problems, which are discussed in this paper.
