Vermiform appendix is a highly variable organ, which is an enigma to the surgeon in terms of its position, size and symptoms. Attachment of its tip to the surrounding organs is relatively rare. Here we present a rare variation of vermiform appendix. The appendix was 12 cm long and was in retrocecal and retrocolic position. Its tip was attached to the right lobe of the liver through a fibrous band which was 2 cm long. This variation might pose difficulties in appendicular resection, renal and hepatic surgeries.
