ABSTRACT A young male patient presented with right lower quadrant abdominal pain 3 years after laparoscopic appendectomy. Clinical and radiological findings were in keeping with acute appendicitis and the diagnosis of stump appendicitis could be confirmed by laparoscopy. This case serves as a reminder of this differential diagnosis and to discuss therapy and prevention of this rare condition.
