Abstract

Pediatric inguinal hernia and hydrocele share a common etiology as well as management. The era of minimal access surgery is challenging the conventional surgical management for pediatric inguinal hernia in particular. This review article aims to highlight the nature of diagnosis and treatment for both hernia and hydrocele and examines both the traditional and contemporary treatment strategies from an evidence-based perspective.
