A 22-year-old male presented with signs and symptoms of acute appendicitis and was taken up for emergency appendicectomy. On exploration, an inflamed appendix was found and appendicectomy was done. After this, a cord-like structure was seen arising from the posterior peritoneum approximately 5 cm proximal to the appendicular stump that was traced to its origin and excised. This cord-like structure was sent for histopathological examination (HPE), which was suggestive of testicular tissue. The case was diagnosed as a supernumerary testis after confirming the presence of normal scrotal testes.
