Abstract

Uretero-inguinal hernias are rare and can be difficult to diagnose. We present a case of a rare transplant kidney uretero-inguinal hernia. An 81-year-old male presented with urosepsis and was found to have an obstructed transplanted kidney secondary to herniation of the ureter into an inguinal hernia. The patient required interventional radiology decompression of the urinary system with a percutaneous nephrostomy tube. In this case, the patient's uretero-inguinal hernia was the extraperitoneal subtype allowing the diagnosis to be made easily on computed tomography imaging of the abdomen and pelvis which facilitated rapid treatment.
