Left-Sided Appendicitis: A Case Report
Ho Suk Doh, Eun Seuk Hong, Chang Woo Nam
ABSTRACT
Frequent anomalies causing a left-sided appendix are situs inversus and malrotation. The ectopic position of the appendix frequently causes a delay or error in diagnosis because of atypical symptoms. A physical examination is of limited value unless dextrocardia is present. A left-sided appendix is a rare anomaly, but when other diseases are ruled out, it must be considered especially at the emergency department.
