Herniation of the bladder towards the inguinal canal is a rare condition. A 76-year-old male patient with long-term left groin swelling was admitted to the emergency clinic complaining of abdominal pain that started about 5 hours ago. The patient, whose abdominal examination was normal, had an incarcerated hernia in the left inguinal region. On superficial ultrasonography, intestinal loop herniation in the left inguinal canal and adjacent loculated fluid of 60x20 mm in size was observed. In the computed abdominal tomography, it was determined that the majority of the bladder had passed through the left inguinal canal and into the hernia sac. Lichtenstein method hernioplasty was applied to the patient who was taken to emergency surgery. Isolated bladder herniation is an extremely rare condition. Recognition of bladder herniation in the preoperative period may prevent possible complications during surgery.
