Appendicitis in Pregnancy

Appendicitis is the inflammation of appendix, rarely associated with pregnancy with an estimated frequency of one per fifteen hundred pregnancies. Appendectomy is a most common non obstetrical surgical procedure in a pregnant patient. The accurate diagnosis of acute appendicitis in pregnancy is usually obscured due to gestational physiological changes. Delay in diagnosis enhances risk of appendiceal perforation, hence rising maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. Symptoms and signs of appendicitis in pregnancy are quite enigmatic as they often vary with the varying trimester of pregnancy due to changing anatomical location of appendix with consequent enlargement of uterus. Appendicitis occurs most commonly in the first and second trimester but can occur at any gestation.
