Late Postappendectomy Faecal Fistula

Introduction: Appendectomy is one of the most common surgical intervention. Partial appendectomy may allow for potential late complications.
Presentation of Case: We present the case of a patient with an enterocutaneous fistula, that occured four years postapendectomy. Following surgery it was discovered an appendico-cutaneous fistula through the presence of a blunt long, dehiscent cutaneous appendix. The completion of the appendectomy led to healing.
Discussion and Conclusion: An appendix stump too long may cause the emergence of a appendico-cutaneous fistula.
