M Heetun, V Stavrinides, B Keeler, D Phillips, A Taylor

Abstract


Anomalies of the appendix are uncommon and are usually discovered incidentally during surgery for appendicitis. We present a rare case of
appendiceal duplication, which can have serious consequences if overlooked during an operation.
