Hernia is the protrusion of an organ or tissue through an opening in its surrounding walls, especially in the abdominal region.Inguinal canal is the usual site of herniation since it is a weak point in the abdominal wall. Inguinal hernias account for about 75%-80% of abdominal hernias. Inguinal hernias are of two types direct and indirect.The hernial sac can include intestines, bladder, colons, ovary and appendices and greater omentum. We present a rare case of an unusual left direct inguinal hernia in an adult male cadaver noticed during routine dissection for first MBBS students in Kasturba Medical College, Manipal University,Manipal. Hernial sac containing loops of small intestine (Ileum) occupied the upper part of canal,while hernial sac extended to the scrotal sac. Indexterms:.Direct Inguinal hernia, ileum, Inguinoscrotal hernia
