Title: Spontaneous enterocutaneous fistula due to femoral hernia Author:Kumar, Awanish; Pahwa, Harvinder Singh; Pandey, Anand; Kumar, Suresh Subject:Cutaneous Fistula -- Etiology ; Hernia, Femoral -- Complications ; Intestinal Fistula -- Etiology Description:
Spontaneous enterocutaneous fistula is a rare entity. We encountered a case of spontaneous enterocutaneous fistula in the groin region due to femoral hernia. A 60-year-old man presented with spontaneous enterocutaneous fistula in the left groin region without signs of peritonitis. He was kept on conservative treatment, but on third postadmission day, he developed a swelling in his right groin, which became firm and irreducible with signs of intestinal obstruction. On exploratory laparotomy, bilateral femoral hernias were noted with formation of enterocutaneous fistula on the left side. Reduction and repair of hernia was performed. In view of the rarity of this complication, this case is being reported here.
