Abstract

Background: A 27-year-old woman presented to the emergency department with acute pelvic pain, most prominent in the right lower quadrant. There was slight leucocytosis and elevation of the C-Reactive Protein. Because of clinical suspicion of appendicitis, a CT scan of the abdomen was requested.
