A 78-year-old woman presented with a large bulge in the right labium majus. She had a previous history of two anterior and posterior vaginal wall prolapse repairs, a vaginal hysterectomy for uterovaginal prolapse, a sacrospinous ligament fixation for vaginal vault prolapse, and a LeFort partial colpocleisis for recurrent vault prolapse. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed an anterior perineal hernia containing small bowel. Surgery was performed to close the pelvic floor defect through a perineal approach, and polypropylene mesh was used as a bolster. The hernial sac contained small bowel with very thin adhesions. Over 6 months of follow-up, there was no recurrence of the hernia or mesh complications. Perineal hernias after gynecological surgeries for benign diseases are rare. The indications for repair and the optimal surgical approach are not well described.
