Background: Hernial pathology is frequent in digestive surgery and a problem of medico- surgical management. The hernial sac often includes the great omentum, slender handles, the caecum. Bladder horn incarceration or the total migration of the bladder is exceptional.

Observation: We report the observation of a large neglected right inguinoscrotal hernia with complex contents (appendix, ascending colon, small intestine, omentum, and bladder) evolving for 20 years in a 54 years old patient seen in a context of fairground surgery at the Covè district hospital.

Conclusion: Early consultation for the hernia would reduce the occurrence of historical hernias and promote adequate care.
