Obturator hernia (OH) is rare which not only carries high mortality amongst all abdominal hernia, but also known for the difficulty in diagnosing it. Howship–Romberg sign is a clinical sign to diagnose OH, but due to the lower-limb muscle contractures, it was not possible in our case. Computed tomography scan becomes the investigation of choice in this situation. A laparoscopic approach can be used safely.
