Among various reasons of swellings in the female inguinal region nuck canal cysts are rare entities. Abnormal persistence of procesus vaginalis opening cause this formation. Presentation at adults can lead misdiagnosis. Inguinal hernia, tumors (benign or malign), cysts, lymphadenopathies and endometriosis are other common reason for female groin swelling. Once diagnosed surgical excision is definitive treatment.
