Perineal Hernias (PH) result from weakness or defects in the pelvic floor musculature, which may allow the passage of abdominal contents to a pelvic-perineal region. They can be classified as primary (congenital) or secondary (post-pelvic surgery), being anatomically distinguished by their position, anterior or posterior, to the transverse perineal muscle. With variable clinical presentation and surgical treatment aimed at cases with greater symptoms, complications caused by perineal hernias in outpatient follow-up are rarely described in the literature. The objective of this study is to carry out a brief literature review and report a case of perineal hernia in a conservative clinical-surgical follow-up, with a perforation event after trauma, approached in an emergency room.
