The incidence of postoperative infection following laparoscopic surgery is approximately 5 percent. These infections tend to involve the wound and underlying subcutaneous tissue. We report a case of severe infection following laparoscopic umbilical hernia repair. To date there are no such documented infections. A literature review of uncommon complications after laparoscopic surgery will follow. Surgeons should be aware of such rare complications and there subsequent management.
