The use of meshes for abdominal wall repair has been widely accepted worldwide; however, serious complications may occur, such as foreign body reaction, mesh migration, penetration into the peritoneal cavity and even migration into the preperitoneal space mimicking colorectal cancer. The aim of this paper is to report a case of intestinal obstruction secondary to mesh migration into the peritoneal cavity in a previously asymptomatic patient who underwent left inguinal hernia repair 10 years prior to admission.
