Appendicitis epiploicae is described as a rare entity in an 8-year-old boy presented with the features of acute abdomen simulating acute appendicitis. Surgical exploration revealed a torsion of appendices epiploicae of the cecum. The excision of infarcted epiploicae with seromuscular inversion resulted in satisfactory recovery. Authors describe this uncommon cause of pediatric acute abdomen along with the review of pertinent literature.
