Internal herniation through a broad ligament defect after obturator hernia repair

A case of internal herniation into a broad ligament pouch 5 months after obturator herniorrhaphy is reported. We believe this to be the first reported postoperative case of internal herniation into such a defect in the broad ligament following obturator herniation repair. Computed tomography was useful in the preoperative diagnosis.
