Acute appendicitis is one of the most common emergency surgical admissions, with a lifetime prevalence of one in seven presentations. Appendicectomy accounts for approximately 10% of all emergency abdominal procedures. The diagnosis of appendicitis is purely based on history, clinical examination and some basic laboratory investigations. However, the definitive diagnosis is made on histology.
