Congratulations,-Dr Ajit Jang Bahadur to presenting this extremely rare case Many of the surgeons may not have seen this case in their lifetimes including me Hydrocoele of a femoral hernia sac is an extremely rare entity. Extensive literature review and internet searching revealed only a few authentically reported cases. It mostly occurs in females during the fourth to sixth decades of life. The most common clinical presentation is groin swelling. It is diagnosed as an irreducible or incarcerated femoral hernia or subcutaneous lipoma. In almost all of the reported cases,as in this case, the diagnosis of hydrocoele of a femoral hernia sac has been made only after surgical exploration.  Thanks

IN THIS CASE HYDROCELE IS A MISNOMUS AS IT IS ONLY PERITONIAL SAC FLUID DUE TO PATENT INTERNAL RING OF FEMORAL HERNIAL SAC AS IN FALLOTS TETROLOGY IS A TRIOLOGY AS RT VENTRICULAR HYPERTROPHY IS SECONDEY TO PUL STENOSIS
