Abstract

The diagnosis periappendicitis is well known. The causes to periappendicitis are manifold. In the literature, we have not yet found a case, where periappendicitis developed because amnion fluid passed to the peritoneum during an elective section. We present a case, where a patient, 5 days after an elective section, developed the symptoms of appendicitis. The pathologic diagnosis is periappendicitis, presumably developed because of the amnion fluid.
