Author:Hussain Ahmed, Rabindra Kumar Baishya, Niju Pegu

Keywords:Giant lipoma, hernia, inguinal, spermatic cord.

Type:Case report

Abstract:Lipoma is a common soft tissue benign tumor. Lipomas of the spermatic cord are rare. We present here a case of giant lipoma of the spermatic cord presented as an irreducible inguinal hernia and its surgical management. The giant lipoma was completely excised and removed in toto. Giant lipoma of the spermatic cord is a large, irreducible, complete, sac-less and indirect fatty inguinal hernia. So, to avoid medico-legal consequences, giant lipoma of the spermatic cord should also be considered as hernias.
