Infants are frequently diagnosed with an inguinal hernia. The hernia can contain intestinal structures or in female infants even the reproductive organs. However it is very exceptional that an inguinal hernia contains the entire uterus, fallopian tubes and both ovaries. In this report a case is described of a two-month-old infant which was diagnosed and semi-urgently operated with a right sided inguinal hernia containing all the aforementioned anatomical structures.
