Amyand's hernia is defined as the presence of a normal or inflamed appendix vermiformis within the inguinal hernia sac and was first described by Claudius Amyand. Most cases of Amyand's hernia are seen on the right side associated with the normal anatomy of the appendix. Diagnosis is usually made during hernia surgery. In this study, a rare case is reported of a patient operated on for left-side incarcerated inguinal hernia and determined with acute appendicitis within the hernia sac.
