Appendicitis is a very common clinical condition requiring immediate attention. Long appendix is a frequent reason for inflammation. Very often the size and position of the appendix varies. The differential development of the caecum is responsible for the different positions of the appendix. Adequate knowledge about the presence of such unusual variations is a must for clinical surgeons. We are reporting one of the longest appendices seen during routine cadaveric dissection in south India which was just over 20 cm in length with the embryological basis.
