Primary perineal hernia is a rare problem, with fewer than 100 cases reported in the literature, and there is no consensus on the optimal technique for repair. There are several case reports describing laparoscopic repair, with and without the use of mesh. We present the case of a 69-year-old female with a symptomatic primary perineal hernia involving the ischiorectal space, for which a primary tissue repair was performed laparoscopically.
