Caption

Appendicitis. Light micrograph of a section of an appendix with acute appendicitis. The appendix is a small, vestigial pouch connected to the large intestine near its junction with the small intestine. Appendicitis is an inflammation of the lining of the appendix that usually results from obstruction by a small piece of faecal matter (centre). The condition causes extreme lower abdominal pain and requires surgical removal of the appendix. Appendicitis is treated as a medical emergency because the appendix may burst, leading to serious complications such as peritonitis, when the intestinal contents infect the abdominal cavity.
