Abstract. Amiand’s hernia is a condition in which the worm is a herniated inguinal hernia. This condition is rare. Even rarer is the development of acute destructive inflammation of the worm located in the cavity of the hernia sac in patients with right-sided inguinal hernia. Preoperative diagnosis of Amiand’s hernia is difficult. In the case of acute inflammation in the appendix, which is located in the hernia sac of an inguinal hernia, however, can lead to incorrect treatment tactics. Since the inflammatory process affects the appendix and hernia, traditional diagnostic methods used in emergency surgery cannot provide comprehensive information. Computed tomography, which is widely used in the diagnosis of urgent diseases of the abdominal cavity, cannot always accurately describe the nature of a tubular mass in the hernia sac. Based on the above, usually such patients with the presence of acute inflammation of the appendix in the hernia sac are operated on urgently with the diagnosis of impinged inguinal hernia, and the detection of an inflamed appendix in the hernia sac turns out to be an operational finding. Therefore, it is important to choose the correct surgical tactics to reduce the possible complications associated with this condition.
Key words: Amiand’s hernia, appendix, inguinal hernia.
