Abstract
Groin hernia in women is an entity whose clinical manifestations can be quite subtle, and which therefore risks to go unnoticed. Imaging studies by ultrasound or dynamic CT/MRI is strongly recommended in case of a clinical doubt. Optimal treatment consists of laparoscopic surgery, even in oligosymptomatic patients, because the risk of incarceration, and subsequent morbidity and mortality is high especially in cases of femoral hernia, which are frequent and often overlooked in women. During pregnancy, the risk of developing a groin hernia is very low (around 0,1%) and a wait-and-see attitude is to be preferred as much as possible, except in the case of an acute complication (incarceration).
