Abstract

Amyand’s hernia is the presence of vermiform appendix in the inguinal hernia sac. Amyand’s hernia is rare, occurring in about 1% of inguinal hernias. We report a case of 22 years male patient with right congenital inguinoscrotal, complete, reducible hernia. He underwent elective transherniotomy, appendicectomy and hernioplasty with an uneventful postoperative recovery.
