The content of the inguinal hernia can be constituted from various anatomical intra and extraperitoneal structures. Very rarely cases of indirect inguinal hernial containing Fallopian tube, ovary and ovarian cysts are found; the few cases described refer to pediatric patients. Inguinal hernia containing Fallopian tube and/or ovary in adult woman is considered indicative of defect development of the reproductive system. We present the case of a woman of 75 years with left indirect inguinal hernia containing Fallopian tube, ovary and ovarian cyst . She had no congenital defect of the genital apparatus but reported the insorgence of idiopathic premature menopause at 35 years.
