In Nigeria, schistosomiasis is endemic and intestinal form affects the various internal organs. However, perforation of the appendix secondary to intestinal schistosomiasis is few. We report the case of a 35-year-old male with perforation of the appendix due to infestation with Schistosoma mansoni, following histopathological examination of the appendix after a laparotomy.
