Abstract

Amyand’s hernia is an inguinal hernia with trapped appendix; its frequency is approximately 1%. Acute appendicitis is a rare clinical presentation (0.1%) of Amyand’s hernia. It was first described by Claudius Amyand in 1735. We report a patient of Amyand’s hernia, three years of age, presented with right inguinoscrotal hernia. Right side groin discomfort was present. Herniotomy was performed revealing anon-inflamed appendix within the inguinal canal for which a classic appendectomy was done.
