Omental torsion is a rare cause of acute abdomen with non-specific presentations mimicking other common pathologies. It is commonly found incidentally during surgery. We report a case who presented with acute appendicitis. We found secondary omental torsion with simultaneous acute appendicitis intraoperatively and proceeded with appendicectomy and partial omentectomy. Ultrasonography and Computed Tomography can detect omental torsion preoperatively and is beneficial especially when patients have vague presentations. Hence, imaging can assist in planning of surgical treatment options.
