Usual and Unusual Pathologies of Appendicitis: A Retrospective Analysis of 385 Patients

Öz Purpose: Appendectomy is the most common abdominal surgery performed worldwide. In this report, we evaluated the results of pathological examinations of acute appendicitis specimens. Methods: We performed a retrospective analysis of patients operated on for acute appendicitis at our surgical department from 2009 to 2017. Data on age, gender, and pathological diagnostic parameters were analyzed. Results: A total of 385 patients (168 women [43.6%] and 217 men [56.4%]), were classified into acute appendicitis (Group 1), normal appendix (Group 2), and unusual pathological findings (Group 3) groups. The patients undergoing appendectomy were mostly in the 21–30 (n = 136, 35.3%) and 31–40 years (n = 118, 30.6%) age groups. The negative appendectomy rate was 4.4% in Group 2, and the proportion of women (70.6%) was significantly higher in that group than the other groups (p
