Clinicopathological Diagnosis of Acute Appendicitis after Emergency Appendicectomy

Shahid Jamal, Muhammad Amin, M. Salim, Aamer Mehmood.

Objective: To evaluate the features of emergency appendicectomy.
Methods: We analyzed 100 cases of emergency appendicectomies performed at Combined Military Hospital (CMH) Kharian.
Results: The age range was 3.5 to 70 years and males were thrice frequently affected. Grossly, 46% of the appendices were normal looking whereas on microscopy this figure was 27%. Acute or acute suppurative inflammation was found in 57% cases whereas 5% were gangrenous. Entrobiasis was found in 7% cases and one was harbouring a malignant tumor.
Conclusion: We found 27 % appendices histologically normal as a result of emergency appendicectomy. (Rawal Med J 2005;30:56-58).
