Inguinal hernias containing a kidney or perinephric tissue are extremely rare and usually related to cases involving a kidney positioned in the pelvis. We report the case of a 79-year-old man who presented with abdominal pain and scrotal swelling. He was found on imaging to have an inferiorly displaced kidney with an inguinal herniation of Gerota fascia, as well as an obstructing ureteral stone with an associated forniceal rupture. The unusual renal anatomy, as well as the management of a forniceal rupture, is discussed.
