A 67-year-old man presented with a 10-year history of intermittent right iliac fossa pain. His only significant past medical history was an inguinal hernia repair 10 years ago. After investigations, the patient underwent a laparotomy. He had a localised caecal perforation secondary to a misplaced prolene suture. A right hemicolectomy was performed.
