A 7–year–old child reported with swelling in the bilateral inguinoscrotal region... Then sac was identified and separated from the cord... Contents were small bowel loops, which were reduced and the sac was transfixed with Vicryl 3–0... The child is doing well in the follow up period of 6 months... Inguinal hernia is one of the most common pediatric surgical problems and when treated early and appropriately it is associated with negligible morbidity and very rarely to any mortality .The incidence of hernias is of 10–20 per 1000 live births and it is much more common following premature birth... Inguinal hernias continue to be the most common congenital pathology in children needing surgical repair early in life... Almost all inguinal hernias in children are of indirect type (99%)... The few direct hernias in children are the result of previous surgery or inguinal floor disruption... Inguinal hernia in children and young adults is usually the result of patent processes vaginalis... It can be life threatening, or can lead to the loss of the testis or part of the intestine if strangulation occurs... Incidence of inguinal hernia ranges between 0.8% and 4.4%
