A 69-year-old patient presented a giant right inguinal-scrotal mass for over ten years. The clinical examination and a CT-Scan confirmed the presence of a giant inguonoscrotal hernia containing the last ileal loops, caecum and the right colon. After a careful pre-operative cardio-respiratory evaluation, the surgery was proposed.

Through an inguinal-scrotal incision, the hernia sac and its contents were largely released and reintegrated into the abdomen. Reparation using a polypropylene mesh according to the Lichtenstein technique was finally performed. The postoperative course was uneventful. The patient was discharged after three days and one year later, no recurrence was found.

This case report shows that in patients with good cardio-respiratory function, Lichtenstein technique with mesh reinforcing remains the best treatment.
