Amyand hernia is an unexpected and rare clinical condition with an appendix found within the inguinal hernia sac, which can usually be diagnosed intraoperatively. The presence of the appendix in the sac complicates the management of inguinal hernias. In this report, we aim to present a patient with right incarcerated inguinal hernia that we operated, who was diagnosed intraoperatively with Amyand hernia.
