A 51-year-old man, who had undergone laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal(TAPP) repair for a left inguinal hernia 8 months previously, was admitted to our hospital because of a left inguinal bulge. Abdominal computed tomography(CT) showed a left inguinal hernia of the bladder. The patient was preoperatively diagnosed to have a left recurrent inguinal hernia with a bladder hernia. We performed TAPP repair for the left recurrent inguinal hernia with a bladder hernia. The postoperative course was uneventful and he was discharged on postoperative day 3. He has demonstrated no recurrence for 20 months after surgery. A preoperative diagnosis of bladder hernia is important to prevent the occurrence of bladder injury during surgery. CT is a useful diagnostic method for identifying bladder hernias. TAPP repair is a useful and safe procedure for the effective treatment of bladder hernias.
