Abstract

Acute Appendicitis is the most common causes of abdominal pain, and it is one of the common surgical emergencies treated by surgeons. Stump appendicitis, is an uncommon complication, also known as remnant appendicitis. It is the result of unintentional incomplete appendectomy with subsequent inflammatory changes in the appendiceal remnant’s scan of the abdomen is more specific than ultrasound for the accurate diagnosis of stump appendicitis because it excludes other causes of the acute abdomen. CT findings may be similar with acute appendicitis. Therefore, it has been proposed that diagnosis of stump appendicitis should be borne in mind in the differential diagnosis presented with right lower abdominal pain with history of appendectomy. The diagnosis of stump appendicitis should be borne in mind in the differential diagnosis of patients presented with right lower abdominal pain with history of appendectomy's is more specific than ultrasonography for an accurate diagnosis of stump appendicitis.
