Amyand hernia; It is a very rare hernia in the inguinal hernia sac. . In this study, we present a case of Amyand hernia complicated by acute appendicitis. A 62-year-old male patient presented to the emergency department with complaints of pain in the right inguinal region. He had an acute appendicitis in the right inguinal hernia. Appendectomy was performed. Because of the high risk of infection, no mesh application was avoided. The patient was discharged on the first postoperative day The incidence of amyand hernia accompanied by acute appendicitis is quite low. When we look at the current literature, it is not recommended to place an amyand hernia repair area with a laparoscopic appendectomy. In this case, the appendectomy was completed laparoscopically and the hernia sac was repaired intraperitoneally with primary suturing. Keywords: amyand hernia , acute appendicitis , hernia repair
