Abstract

The authors present a case of hernia uteri inguinale, or the presence of Mullerian duct structures in an inguinal hernia. This entity presents in phenotypic males presumably secondary to defects in the action of the Mullerian inhibiting substance and presents a pediatric surgeon with management dilemmas. The long-term complications associated with the gonads if left intact include the risk of malignancy and infertility. We describe the use of the laparoscopic technique in the management of this condition and propose an algorithm for the management of this condition.
