Abstract

Amyand’s hernia is considered a rare surgical condition, characterized by the presence of the cecal appendix, inflamed or not, inside the inguinal hernia sac. The authors report a case of Amyand’s hernia diagnosed intraoperatively, in which the proposed therapeutic course was appendicular resection by incision of the inguinotomy and then the approach of the hernia defect by Bassini’s technique. The patient presented satisfactory clinical evolution and was discharged on day-2 postoperatively.
