A 91-year-old female presented with the chief complaints of loss of appetite and vomiting. She was diagnosed with a right femoral incarcerated hernia based on computed tomography (CT) scan and physical examination, for which she underwent manual reduction and transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) repair. During surgery, a partial prolapse of the urinary bladder from the femoral ring was observed. Therefore, a diagnosis of urinary bladder hernia accompanying femoral hernia was established. CT scans are generally considered to be useful in the diagnosis of urinary bladder hernias. However, this diagnosis may not be possible based on preoperative CT findings. On the other hand, TAPP repair is useful as it allows observation from the inside of the abdominal cavity.
