Introduction: Acute appendicitis is the most common reason for undergoing emergency abdominal surgery and must be distinguished from other causes of abdominal pain. Pain due to acute appendicitis is usually localized at the right lower quadrant but may rarely be present in other locations such as the inguinal canal, femoral canal, or left upper quadrant due to congenital anatomical abnormalities of the bowels.
