A 12-year-old boy is admitted for emergency surgery for acute abdominal syndrome. The intervention showed strangulation of the terminal ileum by the vermiform appendix. The pathology analysis showed bilharzial appendicitis by Schistosoma haematobium. The patient was treated with praziquantel. The literature is not plentiful on this subject. Because protozoiasis is endemic in this area, it should be looked for in all cases of appendicitis, as it requires medical treatment in addition to the appendectomy.
