Case: A 66-year-old man underwent open radical prostatectomy and subsequently developed left inguinal hernia. Herniorrhaphy was performed, following which he complained of severe Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of SUI development following inguinal herniorrhaphy in a man who had undergone radical prostatectomy.Outcome: SUI was successfully treated with artificial urethral sphincter implantation.Conclusion: We should be aware of this extremely rare, but possible, complication of inguinal herniorrhaphy in a patient who has undergone radical prostatectomy.
