Ruptured appendix after elective abortion. A case report.

Abstract

Abdominal pain and fever after an uncomplicated elective abortion usually point to incomplete abortion and endometritis. We treated a woman for acute suppurative appendicitis one week after such an abortion. When fever, nausea, vomiting and pain are not relieved by the standard doses of medication, acute appendicitis must be added to the usual gynecologic differential diagnoses.
