Subhepatic appendicitis is a rare cause of right upper abdominal pain. We are sharing an incidental case of subhepatic appendix during cholecystectomy. A 40 years aged woman with cholelithiasis was booked for cholecystectomy. Cholecystectomy was successfully completed and just before closing abdomen, a normal looking subhepatic appendix was encountered and removed.
