In this paper we report a rare case of an incarcerated inguinoscrotal hernia of the urinary bladder in a 64-year-old male patient. He presented with a giant inguinal hernia and pollakisuria. The bladder was surgically repositioned intra-abdominally and resection of part of the bladder fundus was performed through laparotomy. Closure of the inguinal defect was performed through an inguinal approach. The patient's further recovery was uneventful. Herniation of the bladder is a very infrequent finding in inguinal hernias. We searched the literature and only found a few case reports describing this rare pathology. The literature and treatment options are discussed.
