PMID:  1868397     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Most complications after appendectomy occur within weeks of the operation. The authors present a case in which an appendicular abscess presented more than 18 years after appendectomy for acute appendicitis. The abscess simulated a neoplastic obstructive process, and a communication was demonstrated between the cecum and the abscess cavity through the appendiceal stump.
