Richter’s hernia is relatively rare type of incarcerated hernia, in which a wall of the bowel alone is entrapped within a hernia sac, maintaining the bowel continuity. The clinical diagnosis of a Richter’s hernia is difficult, and a high index of suspicion is required to make a diagnosis. An early operative intervention is essential for preventing life threatening complications. We present a Richter’s hernia in a recurrent inguinal hernia, which is extremely rare and only a few cases are reported in the literature [1].
