Fetal scrotal inguinal hernia was diagnosed at 33 weeks of pregnancy by ultrasonographic examination. Moving, echo-free, cystlike structures representing peristalsis within trapped loops of bowel in an abnormally enlarged scrotum were the main ultrasonographic finding. The diagnosis was confirmed post partum, and surgery was successfully carried out 4 days after delivery.
