Abstract

Anomalies of the appendix are extremely rare. The case presented here has not been previously described and is that of a "horseshoe" appendix in a 33-year-old man with sigmoid diverticulitis. This appendiceal variant cannot be classified into any of the existing categories of appendiceal anomalies.
