Abstract: Femoral hernia is an extremely rare condition in infants and children, and is rarely diagnosed before operation. A reducible lump in the groin of a child is by far most commonly that of an inguinal hernia. Conditions which one must bear in mind when confronted with a swelling in the groin in a young child are enlisted. Furthermore, a case report of a child with a one year history of a painful lump in the right inguinal region is described. He underwent two surgeries, wherein the first operation it was thought to be a small reducible right inguinal hernia, and a very small inguinal hernia was excised with no repair being performed. In the second operation the lump was found to be a femoral hernia.
