Acute periappendicitis after an elective section.

Author information

Skive Hospital, Department of Gynecology and Pathology, Denmark.


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.
