Reduction en masse of inguinal hernia: MDCT findings of two cases.

Reduction en masse of inguinal hernia is an extremely rare complication arising from manual reduction of a hernia. The hernial content remaining in the hernia sac returns above the inguinal canal but remains in the abdominal wall. Accurate preoperative diagnosis of reduction en masse of inguinal hernia is challenging because the hernia appears to be reduced upon physical examination. We experienced two cases of reduction en masse. In both cases, multidetector row computed tomography revealed a closed loop obstruction near the inguinal fossa. In addition, we observed a continuous tract of the hernia sac to the inguinal canal and prominent peritoneal thickening suggestive of the hernia sac.
