Timely diagnosis and surgical intervention are vital for any surgical situation. Clinical suspicion and a careful evaluation of a patient with non-specific abdominal symptoms are crucial to avoid any delay in treatment. Hereby, we report a case with delayed acute intestinal obstruction, due to a strangulated internal herniation caused by an adhesion of the appendicular tip to an adjacent pelvic tissue secondary to earlier abdominal surgery as a very rare condition, resulting in intestinal resection.
