A chronic abscess which is caused by a retained fecolith (appendicolith) is an uncommon complication following appendicectomy. It is more common after laparoscopic appendicectomy than open appendicectomy. Itâ€™s incidence has increased due to the increased use of laparoscopic appendicectomy. We are reporting an interesting case report of a delayed presentation of a chronic abscess after 4years following open appendicectomy, which was caused by a retained fecolith.
