Description of Appendicitis

Inflammation of the appendix. The appendix is a small pouch extending from the cecum, the first part of the large intestine. In appendicitis, the opening of the pouch becomes blocked with fecal material (appendicolith) causing swelling of the appendix and allowing bacteria to grow in this area. The appendix has no function and can rupture if the appendicitis is untreated.
