Abstract

Background: The hydrocele of canal of Nuck is a rare condition. Mostly reported at a younger age and it is often misdiagnosed with other groin swellings. Due to its rarity, there are no standard treatment guidelines.

Case Report: Sixty years old lady presented with features of right side irreducible inguinal hernia. On exploration, it was consistent with type 1 hydrocele of canal of Nuck. And it was managed by hydrocelectomy.

Conclusion: The hydrocele of canal of Nuck is rare and often diagnosed at a younger age group. We may find this condition in older women above 60 years of age. Treatment of type 1 hydrocele of canal of Nuck is open hydrocelectomy.
