Abstract:

Background: Stump appendicitis is a rare entity characterized by inflammation of the appendicular remnant, the clinical presentation can be subacute or chronic from 2 months to 50 years after appendectomy. Clinical Case: 36-year-oldmale with a history of laparoscopic appendectomy 18 years prior to his admission, who presented abdominal pain located in the right iliac fossa, accompanied by abdominal distension and hyporexia, abdominal tomography was requested, confirming a picture compatible with appendicitis, performing laparoscopy in which appendicitis of the appendicular stump was evidenced, which was resected without complications. Conclusion: It is important to keep this entity in mind when there is a suspicion of acute abdomen and a history of appendectomy, since the delay in diagnosis and treatment may increase morbidity and mortality.
