52 years old female patient presented with acute onset of severe right-sided abdominal pain associated with nausea, vomiting and one episode of diarrhoea. This was preceded by similar episodes of pain over a 3-week period. On examination the patient had a palpable right iliac fossa mass. Plain film of the abdomen showed a paucity of bowel gas in the right side of the abdomen with an impression of a soft tissue mass in this area.
Abdominal USS and Contrast enhanced CT scan of the abdomen were performed.

What is the most likely diagnosis?

  2. Chronic perforated appendix?

  3. Ruptured ectopic pregnancy

  4. Chronic Perforated Appendix is the correct diagnosis for three reasons:

    1)Patient is 52 years old(The probability of pregnancy is very low).

    2)The CT/Scan shows a paucity of bowel GAS in the abdominal right side.

    3)The appendix is most often localited at The RIGHT ILLIAC FOSSA.
