The authors report the case of a female patient suffering from colic neoplasm and a vast peristomal laparocele, the long-term outcome of a rectal amputation that the patient underwent at a young age. After colic resection, a vast area of surgical mesh in dacron was modelled and positioned in a retromuscular scat, thus allowing the hernia pathology to be resolved relatively simply, owing to its particular location‹in correspondence with a preternatural anus‹until not long ago this would have represented an absolute contraindication to the use of prosthetic materials. A precise surgical approach, marked by a scrupulous respect for aseptic conditions, is essential in these circumstances owing to the persistent risk of septic complications.
