Aim: To report a rare case of strangulated inguinal hernia with appendix and cecum as content. Case description: A 32-year-old male came to the emergency department with severe pain in the right inguinal region. The patient was examined and diagnosed clinically with obstructed inguinal hernia. The patient was prepared for emergency exploration and intraoperative findings were strangulated inguinal hernia with cecum as an appendix as content. A laparotomy was done and the strangulation was relieved followed by an appendicectomy. The postoperative period was uneventful. Conclusion: With the incidence of strangulation in bowel contents in the inguinal region kept increasing, immediate resuscitation and exploration with laparotomy are inevitable to avoid drastic complications. Clinical significance: With the incidence of strangulated inguinal hernia with cecum and appendix as content, a high index of clinical suspicion is of utmost importance in identifying and correctly managing this rare condition.
