Amyand hernia is a rare form of inguinal hernia wherein the appendix is in the hernial sac. Moreover, the incidence of Amyand hernia is reportedly three times higher in children than in adults. Here, we report a case of Amyand hernia in the right groin of a 55-year-old patient admitted to our hospital. We describe our approach to the diagnosis and treatment of Amyand hernia in this case. Altogether, we conclude that reasonable individualized diagnosis and treatment for Amyand hernia according to the patient's conditions is warranted in such cases.
