Clinical and Radiographic Findings of a Sliding Inguinoscrotal Bladder Hernia

Basri Cakiroglu, Ilker Abci, Yilmaz Bilsel, Hilmi Aksoy


Cases of patients with inguinoscrotal hernia containing the urinary bladder, which also termed as “scrotal cystocele”, are very rare. These patients usually present with frequent episodes of urinary tract infection, difficulty in walking, pollakiuria and difficulty in initiating micturition because of incarceration of the urinary bladder into the scrotum. The condition is often diagnosed incidentally, or during the course of surgical repair of inguinal hernia. We present a case of a large scrotal cystocele with preoperative findings and imaging.
