Background: Intestinal stenosis of Garré, first described in 1892, is a rare condition as a consequence of a complicated strangulated hernia. Preoperative diagnosis is challenging because of unspecific symptoms. Proper anamnesis, especially in terms of clinical and surgical history, as well as careful examination of both inguinal spaces is essential. Case Report: We herein present a case of intestinal stenosis of Garré in a 70-year-old female. Conclusion: Intestinal stenosis of Garré should be considered in cases of occlusive symptoms occurring after a non-operative or surgical reduction of a strangulated hernia. A correct diagnosis and an adequate surgical treatment are necessary to solve this rare complication favorably.
