Herniation of the appendix into an inguinal canal is known as an Amyand hernia. Due to its nonspecific symptoms, clinical diagnosis is extremely difficult, and an accurate preoperative diagnosis of Amyand hernia with ultrasound (US) and CT is rarely reported. Herein, we reported a typical case of Amyand hernia in a 74-year-old male in which the correct diagnosis was made using inguinal US and contrast-enhanced abdominopelvic CT. US and CT findings of Amyand hernia showed a target-like tubular structure within the inguinal canal.
