Appendicitis

 

The appendix is a small, tubular protrusion from the large intestine, located close to the transition between the large and small intestines. It is not essential to any bodily system or function.

Appendicitis is the infection and subsequent inflammation of the appendix. It often arises from a blockage of the appendix, due to a small piece of stool, or a foreign body. Removal of the infected appendix is always necessary. If left untreated, appendicitis can result in death.
