ABSTRACT Acute appendicitis with the vermiform appendix located in a groin hernia is a rare condition. The preoperative diagnosis is important to decrease morbidity. We describe the computed tomography imaging characteristics of three cases of normal and inflamed appendices in inguinal and femoral hernias. We provide a review of the literature and consider the implications for surgical management.
