Were you looking for information about Appendicitis? Apendicitis is a common misspelling of appendicitis.
Appendicitis is an inflammation of the appendix that occurs most often in people between the ages of 10 and 30. The condition is considered a medical emergency, and treatment often involves surgery to remove the appendix. When it is treated promptly, most patients recover without problems.
Possible symptoms of appendicitis include abdominal pain, fever, and constipation. If treatment is delayed, the appendix can burst, causing infection and even death. Other possible complications include abscess and organ failure.
