Introduction: Incisional hernia or eventration is a frequent complication that affects approximately 10 to 25% of the patients after a laparotomy. These hernias must be repaired because of their significant morbidity. The usual hernial content is the omentum and intestines, the incarceration of other abdominal structures, such as the genitals, is very rare. Observation: We present an unusual case of a large ovarian cystadenoma herniating through a para-umbilical hernia, resection led to full recovery. Discussion: Large para-umbilical hernias are usually irreducible and incarcerated. Omentum, small and large intestine are commonly encountered in these hernias. By reviewing the literature, we found that incarceration of other abdominal structures is quite rare. Thus the transvaginal sonography is the first-line imaging, we may usually need further investigations such as CT, MRI or even surgical exploration, to avoid any unnecessary delay. Conclusion: In conclusion, para-umbilical hernia in adults can be the site of the incarceration of any abdominal organ and urgent exploration is recommended in these cases.
