Seven patients are reported with acute appendicitis occurring in an external hernial sac. The average age was 69 years. In 4 cases the site was a right femoral hernia and in 3 a right indirect inguinal hernia. In no case was the correct diagnosis made before operation. Recovery was uneventful apart from wound infection in 3 cases.
