A ten year series of 2660 appendicectomies revealed the microscopic diagnosis to be periappendicitis in 50 cases (1, 9%). In 7 cases the appendicectomy was incidental. Of the remaining 43 patients 21 had salpingitis, 15 had other intraperitoneal inflammation, and in 7 cases no obvious explanation could be found. Peroperatively, periappendicitis was suspected in 3 of the 43 cases, in 18 patients the appendix was judged to be normal and in 17 inflamed. It is important to be aware of the existence of periappendicitis as it often produces signs of intraperitoneal inflammation.
