The incidence of both umbilical hernias and fibroids during pregnancy is reported to be rare. Another rare entity is the incarceration of fibroids in pregnancy. We report here the case of a 30-year-old woman in her 32nd gestational week with an incarcerated umbilical hernia. She was operated on an emergency basis, the sessile fibroid was mobilized and the hernia defect was repaired with the Mayo technique. No complications were observed during the post-operative period. She gave birth to a baby girl during the 38th gestational week by means of a cesarean section. The possibility of a fibroid entrapped in the hernial sac should always be taken into consideration at the evaluation of incarcerated hernias during pregnancy. If the contents of the hernial sac cannot be pushed into the abdominal cavity easily, an emergency operation should be considered as a means to prevent further complications related to pregnancy.
