Yes, the pectinous label is perfect,

I agree this is a small femoral hernia,

However it is only small,

I think these small hernias when they look like this and clinical correction is required as it may not need treatment.

I see these small femoral hernia (laxity) cases regularly.

The key feature is that the femoral vein is not completely obliterated and only a small tongue of fat passes through the femoral ring just medial to the vessels at the pectinous level.

I describe these on my worksheet as some “laxity” of the femoral ring requiring clinical correlation.

You have produced beautiful images Diane.
