Stump appendicitis is a rare clinical situation when there is incomplete appendectomy. A wide spectrum of diseases in the differential diagnosis of right lower quadrant pain of the abdomen and presence of appendectomy operation in a patient's history delay the diagnosis. We report such a case of perforated stump appendicitis and generalized peritonitis occurring eight months after appendectomy.
