Fournier's gangrene and inguinal hernia, both are common diseases. However, inguinal hernia in a case of Fournier's gangrene is rarest of rare cases. Only one such case is reported in literature. We present one such rare case. A 50-year–old man presented with blackish discoloration of scrotum with inguinoscrotal swelling. It was associated with pus discharge and foul smell. There were noassociated co morbidities. The patient was a chronic smoker from 40 years. Serial debridement was done until the wound became healthy and free of infection. After infection control, the patient was operated and hernioplasty was done.
