Acute intestinal obstruction as a result of inflammed appendix resulting in band formation in a 50-year-old male is being reported due to its rarity. The purpose of this paper is to draw attention to this rare complication of appendicitis as a cause for presenting as intestinal obstruction-delayed diagnosis of which results in intestinal strangulation and subsequent gangrene of the bowel loop. In this case, after diagnosis of intestinal obstruction, the patient was selected for exploratory laparotomy. The constricting band, incidentally the inflamed appendix along with the strangulated portion of the ileum was dissected out. The patient was discharged after 8 days without having any complications.
