A 14-year-old girl presented with a swelling over the right groin for 2 years associated with amenorrhea. She also had cyclical pain over the swelling every month. On further evaluation, she had a right inguinal hernia with right ovary and uterus in the hernia sac. She underwent inguinal exploration and hernial sac was identified. She underwent hernioplasty and was discharged uneventfully. The presence of uterus in a hernial sac is a rare entity. The risk of complications and chances of untoward injury during the unprecedented surgical procedure warrants a careful evaluation before surgery.
