Abstract

This is a case report of a 59-year old gentleman presenting to the surgical emergency unit with symptoms and signs suggestive of acute appendicitis. An ultrasound scan revealed a mixed echogenic area measuring 5 cm × 2 cm within the right iliac fossa. At laparoscopic appendicectomy the appendix was enclosed in a matt of small bowel and omentum. Histology revealed Appendix Diverticulitis (AD). Postoperative recovery was uneventful and the patient discharged 4 days later. The association between AD and appendix neoplasm is strong. Colonoscopy is recommended in such patients if such a lesion is not found in the appendix remnant.
