Incarcerated right femoral hernia causing a distal small bowel obstruction. There is adjacent free fluid noted.
Some of the proximal small bowel is thickened suggesting possible early ischaemia. No evidence of pneumatosis intestinalis.
Infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm with mural thrombus, measuring 4.9 cm in axial dimension.
Some parts of the dilated loops of small bowel walls were thickened possibly as a result of early ischaemia. The femoral hernia is located below the inguinal ligament.
On CT, the femoral hernia sac is lateral to the pubic tubercle differentiating it from inguinal hernia which is located medial the pubic tubercle.
