    Introduction: Appendicitis is a common cause of acute abdomen; however the classic clinical signs are not often present, which can be manifested by numerous complications, but the revelation by a parietal collection remains unusual, its diagnosis can be challenging. 

    Presentation of case: We describe the case of a 31 years old man, who complains for pain of the right flank. The clinical examination objective an erythematous and painful swelling of the right iliac fossa, the abdominal ultrasound has objectified a collection of the right flank and right iliac fossa, The CT Scan of the Abdomen/Pelvis found a voluminous collection of soft tissues of the right anterolateral abdominal and pelvic wall, hypo dense and heterogeneous, containing air, The surgical exploration objectified a huge purulent collection with subcutaneously ceacum and appendage suppurated and perforated.

    Conclusion: The onset of an abdominal wall abscess without a known cause needs to be thoroughly investigated, with consideration of a subjacent abdominal cause and appendicitis.
