Although US is the method of choice in the evaluation of scrotal abnormalities, the literature is extremely poor regarding sonographic demonstration of scrotal hernias, especially bladder-containing ones. We report three cases of inguinoscrotal vesical herniation in which US was employed, proving to be satisfactory. We highlight the practical value of US, since a preoperative identification of the hernial content can avoid surgical bladder injuries and modify operative management of the herniation.
