Abstract

Incisional hernia is a rare finding following Mc Burney muscle splitting incision of appendicectomy which commonly occurs within 5-10 years of the surgery. It can complicate any prior intra-abdominal surgery irrespective of the incision used. We report this case which occurred over a decade after appendicectomy
