We report a case of a 57-years-old woman admitted for abdominal pain and a not reducible mass in left inguino-abdominal region. With a diagnosis of strangulated inguinal hernia, the patient underwent to urgent surgery. The surgical exploration showed a gangrenous intestinal loop with a Meckel's necrotic diverticulum. A small bowel resection (20 cm) was performed. The post-operative course was uneventful. This seems the first case reported in the literature of woman with a Meckel's diverticulum involved in a strangulated left inguinal hernia.
