Supravesical hernia is an unusual type of hernia. It is of two types: internal and external [Skandalakis JE, Gray SW, Burns WB, Sangmalee U, Sorg JL. Internal and external supravesical hernia. Am Surg 1976 Feb;42(2):142-6]. We are reporting a case of internal supravesical hernia, in a 62-year-old gentleman to call attention to the entity, as a rare cause of intestinal obstruction.
