Abstract

Spontaneous enterocutaneous fistula due to strangulated inguinal Richterís hernia is a rare presentation and occurs mostly either due to ignorance of the patients or delay in seeking timely medical intervention. It is seen mostly in patients from developing countries like India, Nigeria, etc., Reported here is the case of a 50-year-old female patient who presented with left sided fecal fistula which on investigation was found to be due to incarcerated inguinal Richterís hernia. The patient refused for any surgical intervention and hence was managed successfully and conservatively. No similar case reports have been found in the literature thus highlighting its significance.
