Introduction: Inguinal hernia is one of the commonest surgical conditions. Operation is the only effective treatment for hernias. As with other surgical procedures, there are complications with this surgery. Hematoma is one of the well-known complications following hernia repair. But massive preperitoneal hematoma which requires surgical intervention is rare. Case Report: A 62-year-male was diagnosed with left inguinal hernia. He underwent an open hernia with UHS and developed a massive preperitoneal hematoma. After surgical intervention, he recovered eventually. Conclusion: Proper anatomic knowledge and complete bleeding control may avoid post-operation hematoma. And we recommend Lichtenstein technique as the first choice of open hernia repair.
