Abstract

The case of a premature infant with a simultaneous occurrence of appendiceal perforation and incomplete fixation of the colon producing early obstruction of the duodenum is reported. The clinical examination and laboratory and radiological investigations were all negative for the diagnosis of appendicitis, which was found incidentally at laparotomy for duodenal obstruction.
