Well Differentiated Papillary Mesothelioma (WDPM) is an uncommon tumor occurring predominantly in the peritoneum of young women with no history of asbestos exposure. In this report, we present a case of 48 year old male patient presenting with indirect inguinal hernia and incidental finding of a WDPM in the hernial sac during surgery. The unusual site of presentation and the relative rarity of this neoplasm in males evoke much clinico-pathological interest.
