Acute appendicitis is a frequent abdominal pathology, more frequent in the childhood.
The pathophysiology of acute appendicitis is obstruction of the appendix lumen and distension due to continued mucosal
secretion. The second step is a rapid multiplication of resident bacteria, excretion of toxine and wall infiammation.
Causes of this processes are different: in most of cases there is an hyperplasia of intrinsic lymphoid tissue (60%) or hard
stool. Another cause may be foreign body.
But is there a relationship between abdominal trauma and appendicitis?
