A 58-year-old woman was referred to Hospital Tuanku Ja’afar (Seremban, Malaysia) for contrast-enhanced CT abdomen and pelvis following discovery of a solid mass in the right adnexa on ultrasonography. CT findings revealed a well-defined, fat-containing mass with calcifications in the right adnexa measuring 4.5×7.8×4 cm, consistent with ovarian teratoma (figure 1). Incidentally, the vermiform appendix appeared to be elongated and extended into the right inguinal canal. It was not enlarged, and there was no surrounding fat streakiness (figures 1 and 2). A diagnosis of Amyand’s hernia was made. She was advised for conservative (non-surgical) treatment as she was asymptomatic for both ovarian mass and Amyand’s hernia. She was then given appointment for ultrasound follow-up.
