An indirect inguinal hernia containing the entire uterus, ovaries, and Fallopian tubes is extremely rare in pediatrics. The present report describes the very rare case of a 1-month-old girl with an irreducible indirect inguinal hernia containing the entire uterus, ovaries, and Fallopian tubes, and the successful surgical treatment of simple herniorraphy. We review the literature on this type of relationship between indirect inguinal hernia and hernial visceras of the uterus, ovaries, and Fallopian tubes and discuss the clinical features of this complication. Furthermore, the possible cause of indirect inguinal hernia containing the uterus, ovaries, and Fallopian tubes was explored.
