Hydrocele of canal of the Nuck: A case report

Author(s): Dr. Vinod Kumar Nigam and Dr. Siddharth Nigam
Abstract: Hydrocele of canal of Nuck is a rare disease of females. Canal of Nuck is a patent processus vaginalis in women. It usually gets obstructed but sometimes it can remain patent and forms a hydrocele or hernia in inguinal region. Hydrocele of the Canal of Nuck is usually a slow growing painless swelling which is in inguinal region but it can extend from inguinal region to labia majora. Imaging investigations such as ultrasound, CT scan, and MRI help in reaching the diagnosis if not, then it is confirmed on operation and histopathology of the sac wall. Treatment is the excision of the hydrocele. We report a case of right sided hydrocele of canal of Nuck due to its rarity and abnormal size.
