Although the number of people suffer from chronic appendicitis is much fewer than those who suffer from acute appendicitis, we shouldn't ignore it.

Conclusion: The problem was diagnosed as the chronic appendicitis and he underwent the appendectomy by laparoscopic procedure and was completely recovered. Key words: Chronic Appendicitis, Abdominal pain
