Implantation of prosthetic meshes has become the gold standard in the repair of inguinal hernias. In contrast to closure by suture, implantation of a mesh provides tension-free hernia repair, resulting in decreased postoperative pain and significantly reduced recurrence rates. However, mesh implantation may bear specific risks. In fact, mesh infection, migration of the mesh and seroma have been recognized as mesh related complications. Here in, we describe a case with hematospermia as a - to date unreported- complication of mesh repair of an inguinal hernia.
