  1. Introduction: Hernias that do not correspond to the usual sites of hernias in the inguinal and femoral region have been described. Laparoscopic vision provides a much broader and clearer perspective that allows visualizing these hernia defects. The purpose of this paper is to report two cases of peri-inguinal hernias solved by laparoscopy, and to review this unknown situation by many surgeons today.
  2. Methods: A search of the terms “peri-inguinal hernia”, “periinguinal hernia”, “para-inguinal hernia”, and parainguinal hernia” was performed in the databases PubMed, SciELO and Medline; supplemented by means of the search engine Google, Yahoo and Wikipedia, searching alsoreference lists of similar cases and review articles.
  3. Conclusion: Peri-inguinal hernias are a very rare type of hernias. These hernias are a reality that must be recognized, and laparoscopy is a very useful method to diagnose and treat them.
