Abstract

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is generally a disease of young, sexually active patients. However, there have been few reports of computed tomography (CT) and the histopathologic findings of periappendicitis with PID in children. We present a case of PID with periappendicitis in a 12-year-old girl. Her CT findings are described, and the histopathologic findings of periappendicitis are discussed.
