Did You Know?
Appendicitis is a dangerous condition where the appendix becomes inflammed and will rupture if not removed. Inflammation can be caused by a gastrointestinal (GI) infection or a food waste obstruction – both of which can cause bacteria to multiply in the appendix and causing the inflammation.
- The first possible complication of appendicitis is a rupture. If the appendix ruptures, it sends non-sterile contents of the GI tract into the abdominal cavity. This can cause wide spread infection.
- The second is pus formation in the appendix, which can leak out into the abdominal cavity. This is called an appendiceal abscess.Tearing of this abscess can cause infection of the abdominal cavity as well.
