Background: Chronic pain in the inguinal region after hernia repair (inguinodynia) is an uncommon complication that results in pain and paresthesia at the operated site.Case Report: A 46 years old male, submitted to laparoscopic bilateral inguinal hernioplasty that evolved with bilateral inguinodynia. The patient was successfully treated with the removal of the mesh by laparoscopy and did not have hernia recurrence.Discussion: Inguinodynia affects a restricted group of patients after hernia repair. The best way to manage chronic postoperative pain is to prevent its manifestation. Therefore, the anatomical knowledge of the inguinal region is the cornerstone, combined with the proper manipulation and dissection of tissues and the correct use of fixation materials.
