Case Report: A 73-year-old lady presenting with a three-day history of a constipation, vomiting and abdominal pain. Diagnosis: On examination, a right femoral hernia was identified and this was confirmed on CT imaging with evidence of mechanical small bowel obstruction. There was an incidental finding of a large pelvic lipoma causing mass effect. Treatment: This lady underwent open repair of the femoral hernia. Discussion: Intra-abdominal lipomatosis is a rare finding and can present itself in a variety of manifestations, or, can be identified as an incidental finding on cross-sectional imaging. Bowel obstructions, abdominal pain, lipoma and abdominopelvic hernias are some examples of symptomatic presentations of intra-abdominal lipomas.
