A case of ectopic pinworm abscess detected in the right inguinoscrotal swelling is described. A male aged 55 years presented with occasional pain at his right inguinal area for three months followed by accentuation of pain associated with fever and gradual swelling of that area for two weeks. Fine needle aspiration of the swelling revealed frank thick pus. Papanicolaou-stained smear for cytological examination showed frequent ova of Enterobius vermicularis along with fibrinopurulent exudates. A brief review of literature for ectopic enterobiasis is given.
