Acute appendicitis (AA) is discussed in any surgical text dating from the turn of the 19th century. Looking at the lengthy chapters devoted to this subject we often wonder what is there to chat so much about. Knowing that you were fed on AA ad nauseum since the early days of medical school we do not intend to repeat here the whole ‘spiel’ again. Instead, we promise to be brief and not to bore.
