Appendiceal anomalies are extremely rare malformations in the gastrointestinal system that are usually found incidentally. Appendix vermiformis duplex has a reported incidence of 0.004%. The possible locations and shapes described in the Calota classification system should be considered by surgeons. Here, we present a rare case of a 24-year-old male with appendix vermiformis duplex diagnosed during emergency laparotomy.
