Gastric outlet obstruction secondary to incarcerated pylorus in an inguinal hernia.
Inguinal hernias are a common presentation to surgical admission units throughout the world. The majority of presentations are due to hernias containing either fat or small bowel. However, a wide range of intra-abdominal viscera have been demonstrated in inguinal hernias. We report a case of an 87-year-old man who presented with gastric outlet obstruction secondary to an incarcerated inguinal hernia containing the gastric pylorus.
