Foreign bodies causing perforation of hernias are extremely uncommon with only a few cases reported in the literature. Here, we present a case of a patient with ingestion of a foreign body, which was initially managed expectantly but developed a perforation due to the foreign body impacting and causing perforation of an irreducible inguinal hernia. Management of this condition usually involves resection of the involved loop of bowel with repair of the hernia defect at the time of surgery. Patients with ingested foreign bodies who have irreducible hernias have altered anatomy and should be considered for early surgical intervention to prevent complications.
