Obturator hernia is a very rare condition. It is difficult to diagnose and not infrequently its first manifestation is intestinal obstruction. A case surgically repaired by positioning a polypropylene prosthesis extraperitoneally is reported. The incidence of this disease in old female patients who have recently lost weight and are affected by other chronic illnesses is underlined.
