Abstract

Some hernias, e.g. Inguinal and Umbilical are so common that almost everybody is familiar with them. Whereas, there are others, e.g. Obturator and Perineal etc which are so rare that even very Senior and Experienced Surgeons hardly find once or may not encounter them at all in their life time. Here, we present a Case of hernia at an anatomical site, hitherto unknown and unreported in the World Medical Literature. Since many hernias are named after their discoverers, therefore, this hernia is suggested to be named/labelled after the 1st Author (Tariq) who discovered this type of hernia and operated upon this patient as well.
