Inguinal hernias are sometimes difficult to reduce; one reason for this is that there may be a sliding component. The presence of an appendix in a hernial sac (Amyandâ€™s hernia) is a rare entity and the incidence of having an appendix in the hernial sac is less than 1%. Usually, the appendix has been shown to be a part of a sliding hernia and it may be adherent to the sac, most commonly to the mesoappendix rather than the appendix itself and it makes up all or some part of the postero-medial wall of a hernial sac. We report here, an unusual case in which the appendix passed through a hernia sac and was not part of a sliding hernia.
