Incisional hernia through suprapubic cystostomy incision site is very rare. A 72-year-old man with an incisional hernia fallowing suprapubic cystostomy for acute urinary retention is presented. This is only the 7th case reported in the literature. Although rare, but incisional hernia should be considered in patients who present with lower abdominal discomfort some time after suprapubic cystostomy.
