Incisional hernia is defined as dehiscence of fascia and bowel obstruction. The clinical manifestation includes gross disruption of the wound with drainage, presence of a bulging with exertion or Valsalva maneuver, painful continuous bulge if bowel or omentum is incarcerated, and bowel obstruction or infarction. We report a 63-year-old woman with the history of three times cesarean section with a midline incision. She was operated for ovarian tumor. Total laparoscopic hysterectomy and lymphadenectomy was performed. She attended to hospital 5 days after surgery with the chief complaint of abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. There was a bulge tender around the umbilical port and patient’s creatinine was 4 mg/dl in laboratory test. The ultrasound confirmed a port site hernia. A strangulated hernia was diagnosed and treated with laparotomy.
