A De Garengeotís hernia is rare surgical phenomenon in which a femoral hernia contains the appendix. It can be asymptomatic or present as a tender lump, and may predispose to a hernia-contained case of appendicitis. We present the case of a 76-year-old female who presented to our outpatient department complaining of a tender rightsided groin lump. Diagnosis of this rare hernia is often made intra-operatively, but, in this case, a CT scan was performed preoperatively which provided guidance for safe surgical planning.
