A Rare Case of Amyand's Inguinal Hernia - A Case Report

Dr. Sushrut Sankpal | Dr. Amol Patil [2] | Dr. Vinish Dwivedi

Abstract: Amyand's hernia is a rare hernia defined as an inguinal hernia that contains the appendix within the hernia sac. Most patient with AH often remains asymptomatic and diagnosed intraoperatively. The diagnosis is challenging, since needs a high index of suspicion and imaging is key. Surgery is the mainstay management. We report a case of Amyand's hernia that was managed operatively in our medium complex public institution. This case report presents a 27 - year - old male with right inguinal hernia, confirmed by ultrasound. The surgery was performed under spinal anesthesia, and the appendix was normal and reduced back. The patient was discharged on the next day of surgery after an uneventful course in the hospital. While the incidence of this type of hernia is rare, the appendix may become incarcerated within Amyand's hernia and lead to further complications such as strangulation and perforation.
