The Teaching Point

Bladder hernia is a rare pathology but should be suspected in every male patient with obstructive symptoms and associated hernia. Retrograde and voiding cystourethrogram are the radiological diagnostic tests of choice in such cases. Urinary bladder hernia occurs with a similar incidence of tubo-ovarian hernia, however, it requires special attention because of a high risk of iatrogenic bladder injury during inguinal dissection.
