A foetal inguinoscrotal hernia is a rare abnormality. We report a case of foetal inguinoscrotal hernia diagnosed by ultrasonography at 37 weeks gestation and its spontaneous regression during the perinatal period. The imaging features, differential diagnosis, pregnancy management and outcome are discussed.A 22-year-old female in her first pregnancy was referred to our centre at 37 weeks menstrual age for obstetric ultrasonography to assess foetal wellbeing. The clinical history was unremarkable. Routine obstetric sonographic examination at 22 weeks gestation did not reveal any abnormality.Ultrasound examination showed a normal foetal biometry with adequate amniotic fluid. A mass was incidentally noted on the right side of the foetal scrotum measuring approximately 2.9?×?1.7?cm. The mass appeared heterogeneous in echotexture and showed echo movements within the lesion suggestive of peristalsis. The right testis was separately identified and displaced by the mass. The median raphe of the scrotum was displaced to the left and the left testis appeared normal. The contour of the scrotum was altered along with the movements of intrascrotal echoes. Based on these findings, a diagnosis of right inguinoscrotal hernia was made.
