Incisional hernia which if not repaired at the earliest might increase in size and eventually end up in complications like incarceration or strangulation. Perforation of the bowel loop in case of incarcerated or strangulated incisional hernia without any precipitating events like trauma is very rare. Intestinal perforation, if identified is a life-threatening condition that requires emergency surgical management. Perforation of the small bowel along its mesenteric border is a rare entity with only very few cases being reported. Authors hereby, present a case of a 55-year-old female with long standing incisional hernia who was diagnosed as an incarcerated incisional hernia after Computed Tomography (CT) and was proceeded with an exploratory laparotomy, which on further exploration revealed perforation of the incarcerated ileum along its mesenteric border for which resection and anastomosis was done.
