Objective: To evaluate histopathologic features of appendix after appendectomy.
Methods: A total of 2753 appendices specimen that had been received in the department of pathology of two major hospitals in Kerman-Iran were reviewed by two pathologists and classified as follows: Normal, early acute, acute, suppurative or purulent, gangrenous, and perforated appendicitis.

Perforation was observed to 0.8%. There were significant differences between sex and stage of development of appendicitis. Seasonal differences were found in incidence.
Conclusion: Acute appendicitis was more frequent in men than women, and increased specially in ages19-30 years. It was more frequent and higher in stage in winter season. (Rawal Med J 2005;30:53-55).
