Appendicitis has been one of the main differential diagnoses in clinical correlation to right iliac fossa pain for surgeons and radiologists. Presenting here a case, which makes one to re think about approach to right iliac fossa pain. A middle-aged man diagnosed and operated for acute appendicitis 5 months before. He still had pain in right hypochondrium, paraumbilical region and in right iliac fossa. Ultrasound of the abdomen reported adenomyomatosis of the gallbladder. A CT scan of the abdomen with contrast reported as a Meckel’s diverticulum with a polypoidal mass and adenomyomatosis of the gallbladder. The patient underwent laparoscopic segmental bowel resection with anastomosis, and laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The patient had a smooth recovery with no abdominal symptoms in follow up. The association of inflammatory polyp in Meckel’s diverticulum, and adenomyomatosis of gallbladder is a rare combination presented in this patient.
