Since the birth of laparoscopic surgery, the morbidity in context to conventional surgery has hugely reduced; nevertheless, the laparoscopic surgery has its own specific complications, one of them being port-site hernia, which can be devastating. As the minimal access surgery is advancing to the single-port or single-incision laparoscopic surgery and bariatric and robotic surgery, the rise in port site hernia will be noticeable. However, the dilemma still exists regarding the pathogenesis, prophylactic closure of larger port sites, and the optimum technique of management of port-site hernia due to a lack of high level of evidence. Herein, we present a female patient with port-site hernia, leading to small bowel obstruction from one of the working ports.
