Round ligament varicosities are a rare disorder seen in gravid females and is often mistaken for complicated inguinal hernia. We present a very rare case of a 2 years old female child who presented with intractable pain in the right inguinal region, found to be a round ligament varicosity. Relief was achieved only after excision of the mass. A diagnostic laparoscopy was also done to confirm the presence of normal ovaries.
