Laparoscopic surgery, though considered to be an ambulatory procedure, is associated with many unanticipated complications. We encountered a case of drain site hernia in a 40-year-old woman who presented with abdominal distension with pain with features suggestive of intestinal obstruction on the third postoperative day in a case of primary infertility patient admitted for Hysteroscopy and Laparoscopy (Diagnostic and Therapeutic) for left-sided dermoid cyst excision.
