Abstract

Stump appendicitis has been reported after either open or laparoscopic appendectomy. Because of the low index of suspicion owing to a previous history of appendectomy, the diagnosis is often delayed and complications can occur. We report a 30-year-old patient with Stump appendicitis, who underwent completion appendectomy laparoscopally.
