The presence of unilateral Pantaloon's hernia with contralateral direct hernia coexisting together is a rare occurrence. We noticed such a case, where in one male cadaver aged 78 years on routine cadaveric dissection. A case of unilateral Pantaloon hernia was observed where both direct and indirect hernial sac were observed in the inguinal region on the right side while on the left side a huge direct inguinal hernial sac was present with coils of sigmoid colon as its content. Here, we have discussed this rare occurrence of composite hernias with their contents in a single body in detail with the associated morphological distortions and possible complications.
