Ureteroinguinal hernia: a rare companion of sliding inguinal hernias.


Ureteroinguinal herniation is a rare occurrence with only 54 reported cases in the English literature. This article reviews the literature and reports on a case that typifies the problems posed by ureteroinguinal herniation. General surgeons should be aware of the potential of this condition so that they can prevent ligation or severance of the involved ureter.
