Abstract

Inguinoscrotal hernia of the bladder is relatively uncommon, difficult to diagnose and remain a surgical challenge. We report a 72-years-old man with a recent diagnosis of prostate neoplasm who underwent a Technetium-99 hidroximethylene-diphosphonate (Tc-99m HMDP) bone scintigraphy which reveals, as an incidental finding, a left inguinoscrotal hernia containing a portion of the urinary bladder.
