Appendicitis with or without perforation is a common pediatric emergency department diagnosis, as are the findings of patent processus vaginalis and cryptorchidism. We describe the unique presentation of perforated appendicitis complicated by a tender inguinal mass resulting from the presence of purulence as well as a cryptorchid but viable testis within a patent processus vaginalis. We describe our diagnostic approach and review the literature relevant to inguinoscrotal presentations of appendicitis.
