15 cm Long Appendix, A Management Dilemma: A Case Report

Rajesh Chaudhary, Amar Verma, Ankit Shukla, Atul Gupta, Kulbhushan Sharma and Varun Verma

Apendix is a worm shaped tubular structure found attached to the ceacum just below the ileocecal junction in humans, some apes and wombats. It’s inflammation is the most common disease of the appendix which leads to appendectomy; the most common emergency operation throughout the world. It’s different positions are responsible for different clinical presentation apart from common symptoms and on top of that a long subhepatic appendix can further confuse the picture and produce a diagnostic dilemma. Hence a good clinical acumen and a high index of suspicion are required to lower the morbidity and mortality associated with a delayed diagnosis of acute appendicitis.
