To fill bony defects, an iliac crest bone graft is often used. Typical complications are hematoma, nerve injuries, infection or donor site related pain. This article reports the case of a young patient with acute appendicitis after bone grafting from the right iliac crest. Because of the preceding operation, the correct diagnosis was difficult and was only possible by a differentiated clinical examination followed by machine-aided diagnosis.
