Internal hernias are a rare condition and sometimes life-threatening, and they need an emergency exploratory laparotomy. Appendicectomy for chronic appendicitis is controversial. Without timely treatment, chronic appendicitis may develop into a ruptured appendix and an infection that spreads to other parts of the body, and other serious complications.

Her medical history indicated a chronic, right lower abdominal pain for three years.
