Diverticulosis of the appendix


An operative resection specimen from a 28 year old man who had had central abdominal pain for about nine days. This cleared up twelve hours before admission but was soon replaced by a severe pain in the right iliac fossa. At operation an inflamed appendix was removed. Recovery was uneventful.
