Acute inflammation 1

Created by Prof. Mike Dixon

Male age 18

Tissue: Appendix

The patient had a two day history of initially peri-umbilical pain that gradually became more severe and moved into the right iliac fossa. On examination his abdomen was tense and there was 'rebound' tenderness. He underwent an immediate laparotomy and the appendix was removed.

The appendix is haemorrhagic. There is faecal material in the distal part where an outpouching of the lumen can be seen.
