82-year-old male patient previously twice subjected to surgical intervention for peritonitis, and to two subsequent interventions for giant incisional hernia. After the final intervention, the meshpad was removed, due to infection, but the giant eventration persisted. Eight years later, when anaemia was observed, a gastroenterology examination was performed and sigmoid cancer diagnosed. Subsequent CT scans revealed a giant right renal cyst measuring 29 × 21 cm, within the evisceration. In response, a left hemicolectomy was performed, with resection and marsupialisation of the renal cyst, and repair of the incisional hernia. The patient evolved well and was discharged eight days after surgery.
