Perforating flaps are increasingly used in reconstructive surgery. Among their many applications, the propeller perforating flap technique makes part of the most recent. It allows any part of the body to become a potential site donor of perforating flap based on Doppler tracing. The shape of skin patch is adapted "to measure" then it is turned like a propeller up to 180° to make up for the loss of substance. The donor site is self-closing or grafted . The first pedicled inguinal flap was described in 1972 by McGregor, it is based on the superficial iliac circumflex artery (SCIA). Since this flap has experienced progress, particularly in perforating flap and free flap . In this article we will describe the application of the SCIP (superficial circumflex iliac perforator) flap in management of soft tissue defect on the right inguinal region in a patient in his seventies, the choice of this flap was guided by need for a large graft with the slightest functional and aesthetic damage while maintaining the local cosmetic appearance of the skin (appearance, thickness and plasticity.)
