A case report on left-sided appendicitis with intestinal malrotation


Author(s): Dr. Parthraj Vadher and Dr. Manish Bhatiya

Abstract: Acute appendicitis is a mimicker of a wide range of gastrointestinal and genitourinary pathologies. The diagnosis becomes more challenging when it is associated with intestinal malrotation. A rare case of left-sided acute appendicitis with asymptomatic undiagnosed intestinal malrotation is reported. A 26-year-old male without known comorbidities presented with periumbilical and left-sided abdominal pain. Abdominal ultrasonography and computerized tomography scans showed intestinal malrotation with acute appendicitis. Exploratory laparotomy and appendectomy with midline incision were performed, and the patient had no issues on follow-up. Given the rarity of acute appendicitis associated with intestinal malrotation, an increase in awareness of this anatomical variant is essential among emergency physicians, radiologists, and surgeons for prompt diagnosis and timely intervention.
