ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Acute Appendicitis

History: 12 year-old boy presents with acute right lower quadrant pain.

Findings: Gray-scale sonographic images through the right lower quadrant show an inflamed appendix. This dilated, fluid-filled, noncompressible, blind-ending tubular structure measured 8 mm in diameter, with increased periappendieal echogenicity representing infiltration of mesenteric fat. Additionally, note the target appearance caused by a fluid-filled lumen and an intact echogenic submucosal layer. Color Doppler sonography showed marked hyperemia along the periphery of the appendix.

Ddx: Imaging findings are characteristic for appendicitis.

Dxhow: Surgery
