Urinary bladder hernia is evident into 1 to 3% of inguinal hernias. About 7% of bladder hernias are diagnosed preoperatively. The herniation of the bladder occurs in an acquired direct inguinal hernia with the bladder setting into the hernia along with the peritoneal sheath. This is a report of an elderly male with a para-peritoneal vesical hernia. This is a rare condition requiring a high index of suspicion to prevent complications like urinary tract infection, obstruction and incarceration of bladder wall.

Keywords: Elderly males, Inguinal, Para-peritoneal, Urinary complaints, Vesical hernia.
