We would like to comment on the publication "Uncommon causes of acute appendicitis: foreign bodies in the cecal appendix." Rodríguez Lucas et al. presented a COVID-19 recipient who presented with acute appendicitis and surgical exploration detected dental prosthesis. The foreign body might be the cause of acute appendicitis. Dental protsthesis is a possible problematic foreign body that might be trapped in appendix. The history of dental prosthesis loss might be a useful clue for this specific clinical situation.
