Abstract EN

In females with right lower quadrant acute abdominal pain, gynecological & obstetric pathologies are the main disorders that should be eliminated from the diagnosis of acute appendicitis. This study included pathologic findings in 120 appendectomies in Al-Sadr Teaching Hospital in which exploration was performed as emergency acute appendectomies in 52 cases, while other pathologic processes related to gynecological diseases are distanced from appendicitis intraoperatively. There is a high percentage of coexistence with ovarian cyst in all its types whether twisted, ruptured, hemorrhagic or corpus luteal cyst. Other conditions included: ectopic pregnancy, uterine fibroid, Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID), Tubo-Ovarian ess (TOA), benign cyst adenoma & endometriosis.
