Background: Garengeot's hernia is a rare presentation of a femoral hernia. Rarely, a Garengeot's hernia is managed laparoscopically. Case report: We report a case of a 66 year-old male presented with an incarcerated groin hernia at the emergency department. He was taken in to laparoscopic hernia repair, with TAPP approach finding a right hernia femoral defect of 4 cm from which cecal appendix was reduced, in a suppurative phase. Discussion: This is the fourth case reported in the literature. A Garengot's hernia can be managed laparoscopically. TAPP technique allows reducing the herniated appendix, repairing the hernia defect, determining the contamination of the abdominal cavity and the use of a mesh in the primary hernia repair.
