Appendicitis is a common cause of acute abdominal pain. The diagnosis is eminently clinical and the cause is surgically correctable. However, a decision of surgery based on the clinical presentation only has a 15%-30% chance of the removal of a normal appendix. Thus, the diagnosis involves a corroboration of clinical, laboratory, and radiological findings. Appendicitis scoring systems can be considered to expedite the diagnostic and decision-making process.
