 en Amyand’s Hernia Mimicking Acute Scrotum
Yıldız, Fahrettin; Terzi, Alpaslan; Çoban, Saçid & Uzunkoy, Ali

Abstract

Amyand’s hernia is an inguinal hernia with an appendix involved. It is a rare condition. Perforated appendicitis is much less common in this situation and very few cases have been reported in the literature. Preoperative diagnosis is difficult. If additional pathologies exist, the diagnosis is more troublesome. We aimed to present a patient with Amyand’s hernia mimicking acute scrotum which is rare in the literature.

Keywords
