At the request of the authors, the article titled “A Rare Case of Chronic Appendicitis Superimposed on an Incarcerated de Garengeot Hernia Prospectively Identified on Computed Tomography” [1] has been retracted. There was disagreement between the authors in regards to the pathology results and final diagnosis, as chronic appendicitis could not be determined on the pathology. There is a De Garengeot hernia, however, chronic appendicitis is not a pathologic diagnosis and therefore there are no pathologic criteria to diagnose such an entity.
