Abstract

Diagnosis of right lower quadrant pain in a woman is frequently confusing. The course of 53 patients who had operation with a normal appendix and no other intraabdominal pathology is compared with a group of 50 patients with a normal appendix and acute salpingitis. Appendectomies were performed in all cases and there was a lower mortality and morbidity rate in the group of patients with salpingitis. It is, therefore, concluded thet appendectomy is a safe procedure in patients with acute salpingitis.
