Obturator hernia is a rare form of pelvic hernia that is more common in older women. The clinical diagnosis of hernia is difficult. This type of hernia cannot be visualized by a general examination, and it is also impossible to reveal it by palpation, that is why it is more often detected at the stage of complications and is accompanied by high mortality. This work presents observation of a strangulated hernia of the obturator canal in a 96-year-old patient diagnosed with computed tomography.
