Abstract: Laparoscopic surgery can be associated with a specific type of incisional hernia through the trocar site causing complications such as small bowel obstruction. Trocar Site Hernia (TSH) is defined as an incisional hernia which occurs after minimally invasive surgery on the trocar incision site. In 2004 Tonouchi classified trocar site hernias into 3 types: Early onset type; late onset type; Special type. This is a case of 43 yrs old presented in emergency with the complaints of pain all over the abdomen one day. On examination diffuse tenderness was present all over the abdomen and rebound tenderness was present, a 7 x 3 cm swelling was present in the right iliac fossa. She had a past history of laparoscopic salpingectomy for left sided ruptured ectopic pregnancy six years back. Routine blood investigations and USG done which showed provisional diagnosis of incarcerated incisional hernia was made. Patient was taken up for emergency surgery within 24 hours after initial stabilization. Hernioplasty with Prolene mesh repair was performed.
