Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Yersinia pseudotuberculosis is an uncommon cause of abdominal pain. It has a much lower incidence than Yersinia enterocolitica, and most reports have emanated from Europe or North America. This report is about a patient with Yersiniosis affecting the appendix alone, in contrast to the usual picture of mesenteric adenitis or septicemia associated with this organism.
