Appendicitis is a condition where the appendix, a finger-shaped pouch connected to the large
intestine, becomes inflamed or infected. It is characterised by severe pain in the lower right
abdomen that is sometimes accompanied by symptoms like fever, nausea and appetite loss.
Appendicitis is a medical emergency that requires the removal of the appendix. If left untreated, the inflamed appendix may rupture and spill infectious contents into the abdominal cavity. These bacteria may cause life-threatening consequences, such as peritonitis.
