Description Background: Hernia is mainly defined as a protrusion, bulge or projection of an organ or a part of an organ through the body wall that normally contains it. The present study compared different treatment modality of inguinal hernia. Subjects and Methods: 80 cases of lingual hernia of both genders were divided into 2 groups of 40 each. Group I patients underwent Lichtenstein’s hernioplasty and group II patients underwent preperitoneal meshplasty. Parameters such as time taken for surgery, early complications were recorded. Results: Group I had 22 males and 18 females and group II had 25 males and 15 females. The mean time of surgery in group I was 46.2 minutes and in group II was 55.2 minutes. The early complication was seroma 2 each in group I and 1 in group II, wound infection 3 cases in group I and 2 in group II, pain 2 in group I, mesh infection 3 in group I and 1 in group II and testicular atrophy 1 in group I. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). Conclusion: Inguinal hernias were effectively managed with both techniques.
