Caption: Inflamed appendix. Illustration of the intestines with a close-up showing an inflamed appendix (finger-like projection). The inflammation of the appendix is a common cause of abdominal pain in children and young adults. The cause is usually not known but it may occur because a lump of faeces is obstructing the appendix, or because of a worm infestation. Symptoms include pain in the lower right-hand side of the abdomen, slight fever, loss of appetite, vomiting, a coated tongue and foul breath. The usual treatment is appendicectomy, the removal of the appendix; if treatment is delayed the appendix may perforate releasing its contents into the abdomen.
