    Appendicitis in pregnancy has a well documented high morbidity due to the difficulty in diagnosis. However, synchronous ectopic pregnancy and appendicitis is a rare event. This report describes the case of a 22-year-old lady of Bangladeshi origin who presented with both these conditions. The importance of prompt diagnosis and early surgical intervention, the inherent difficulties in diagnosis and the possible interrelated aetiological factors are discussed.

    The place of laparoscopic appendicectomy in the management of complicated appendicitis remains unsettled with reports of a higher incidence of postoperative intraperitoneal abscess. Most studies on laparoscopic appendicectomy in children have been done in the Western population. This retrospective review was done to compare laparoscopic appendicectomy with open appendicectomy in children with complicated appendicitis in a hospital in Malaysia.

    Abdominal pain with dengue fever can be a diagnostic challenge. Typically, pain is localised to the epigastric region or associated with hepatomegaly. Patients can also present with acute abdomen. We report a case of a girl with dengue fever and right iliac fossa pain. The diagnosis of acute appendicitis was made only after four days of admission. An appendicular mass and a perforated appendix was noted during appendectomy. The patient recovered subsequently. Features suggestive of acute appendicitis are persistent right iliac fossa pain, localised peritonism, persistent fever and leucocytosis. Repeated clinical assessment is important to avoid missing a concurrent diagnosis like acute appendicitis.

    A case of acute appendicitis occurring in a 10- month-old infant is reported. The difficulties of an early preoperative diagnosis are highlighted. Perforation has usually occurred on presentation. However, prognosis may not necessarily be poor if active measures are instituted soon after perforation. The importance of active and aggressive preoperative resuscitation with fluids and electrolyte and intravenous antibiotics is stressed.

    While endometriosis is fairly common, endometriosis of the appendix is a very rare occurrence. Correct pre-operative diagnosis is uncommon and definitive diagnosis is established by histology of the appendix. We present a case of endometriosis of the appendix that manifested as acute appendicitis in a 40-year-old woman.

    A case report of a missed appendicitis presenting with abdominal wall necrotising fasciitis which extended up to the right knee. This subcutaneous collection in the prepatella region of the right knee presented as a crepitus and mimicked an intraarticular pathology.

    Acute scrotal pain and swelling in children is commonly attributed to torsion of the testis or of the testicular appendage. However, following suppurative appendicitis, scrotal abscess secondary to a patent processus vaginalis must be considered.

    The total and differential leucocyte counts were estimated in 100 consecutive cases operated for acute appendicitis. Leucocytosis was seen in 52% of cases. 480/0 of patients had a leucocyte count below 10000 per c. mm. A study of the differential count was also made to see if this parameter could be used as a specific diagnostic aid. Though the neutrophil count was high in 74% of the cases, the comparative count among the below 10000 per c.mm. group was not significant. It is concluded that the total and differential counts are of limited value in the assessment of these patients. It is suggested that such estimation be used as a supportive aid only. In those doubtful cases with normal or low counts, frequent clinical reviews should be done and reliance placed on clinical assessment rather than laboratory information.

    A young boy presented with history of abdominal trauma. History and initial clinical findings suggested a soft tissue injury. Due to increasing abdominal pain and fever, we proceeded with an exploratory laparotomy with a diagnosis of intra-abdominal injury, at which we found a perforated appendix. Appendicitis following blunt abdominal trauma needs high index of suspicion.

    In a retrospective study, 455 people were found to have been admitted to the Surgical Unit of the Taiping District Hospital, suspected of acute appendicitis in the study period from 1 July to 31 December 1990. However, only 147 (32.3%) were clinically confirmed to have appendicitis and underwent appendicectomy. Out of these, 120 (81.6%) cases were subjected to detailed analysis. The study showed that the commonest age group affected was the 10 to 20 year old. Males were slightly more often affected but there seemed to be an equal distribution among the major races. The diagnostic accuracy, that is the operated cases that were actually acute appendicitis, was 92.5%. The perforation rate was 31.5%. Fifty-five percent of patients developed some post-operative complications, of which the commonest was fever.

    This paper presents a case report of a primary lymphoma of the appendix as the underlying cause of acute appendicitis. As in previous reported cases, diagnosis can only be made intraoperatively followed by a proven histopathological picture as they present with an acute surgical abdomen.

    Diagnosing acute appendicitis in children can be difficult due to atypical presenting symptoms. While there are reported cases of acute appendicitis or appendiceal masses causing unilateral hydronephrosis, bilateral hydronephrosis as a complication of appendiceal mass is very rare. We report a case of a child who presented with cardinal symptomatology associated with the urogenital tract. Ultrasound (US) investigation showed a pelvic mass causing bilateral hydronephrosis. An initial diagnosis of a pelvic teratoma was made based on the US and computed tomography (CT) scan findings. The final diagnosis of an appendiceal mass causing bilateral hydronephrosis was established intraoperatively.
