We report about a case of perforation of a peptic ulcer in an inguinal hernia. A 64-year-old female patient had been suffering from bilateral inguinal hernias for several years, without digestive complaints. The sudden occurrence of symptoms resulted not from strangulation, but from a specific complication of the incarcerated organ, ie. the perforation of an ulcer of the antrum, probably secondary to the intake of nonsteroid anti-inflammatories. Surgical treatment consisted in the suture of the perforation and the cure of the hernia with a net.
