Abstract

A 61-year-old male was admitted to the Emergency department
with a history of increasing abdominal pain for 7 days. On physical
exam pain and tenderness in the right lower quadrant were evident
while laboratory examination revealed slightly elevated neutrophil
count. Abdominal ultrasound was unremarkable probably due to
artifacts induced by gas in caecum.
