AJP Rep 2020; 10: e129-e132 DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1708849Appendicitis in pregnancy is the most common nonobstetric surgical emergency. Pregnancy causes changes in anatomy, which could lead to uncertainty regarding the diagnosis of appendicitis. This case report describes a case of appendicitis presenting with peritoneovaginal fistula in a pregnant woman in the second trimester, with interesting finding of isolated appendiceal endometriosis on pathology. The importance of complete physical examination, including speculum examination, is emphasized in the pregnant patient presenting with acute-onset abdominal pain. Imaging cri...

Endometriosis is a benign complex gynecologic disease characterized by the presence of endometrial tissue outside the uterus. The intestines are the most common extra-pelvic site affected by endometriosis, with gastrointestinal (GI) involvement reported in up to 12% of women with the disease. In the GI tract, the sigmoid colon is the most commonly involved, followed by the rectum, ileum, appendix and cecum. Endometrial tissue usually implants in the submucosa, muscularis propria or subserosal tissue with rare involvement of the mucosa.

Publication date: Available online 4 November 2019Source: Journal of Visceral SurgeryAuthor(s): A. Faul, A. Laforest, D. FuksSummaryAppendix intussusception is rare, can be responsible of chronic unexplained abdominal pain and is mostly associated with inflammatory changes or endometriosis. A 23-year-old woman with Crohn's disease was diagnosed invaginated appendix by CT-scan and colonoscopy after several acute atypical abdominal pain episodes. These episodes were suspected to be independent of the Crohn's disease and to be attributed to the intussusception itself. A resection combining ligation of the base by colonoscopy ...

To determine the prevalence of appendix pathology (i.e. endometriosis, fibrous obliteration, tumor, acute/chronic inflammation) in patients with chronic pelvic pain. To determine whether preoperative symptoms, age ( ≤ 35 or>35), or intraoperative appendiceal appearance were associated with appendix pathology.

AbstractEndosalpingiosis rarely affects the appendix but can be mistaken for acute appendicitis or appendiceal tumors. The medical literature regarding appendiceal endosalpingiosis is sparse; consisting of only four case reports which are primarily focused on the histopathology but provide little radiologic correlation. Endosalpingiosis is a rare condition characterized by the presence of benign fallopian tubal-like glandular epithelium derived from Mullerian ducts, usually affecting the serosal surfaces of the pelvis and peritoneum. It is histologically differentiated from endometriosis as endosalpingiosis lacks endometri...
