A case of chronic appendicopathy caused by parasitic infection
Case Reports in Gastroenterology , Volume 4 - Issue 3 p. 397- 398
Parasitic infection of the appendix is rarely seen, but should be considered in patients with symptoms of chronic appendicitis. It is rarely associated with histological inflammation of the appendix, therefore radiographic imaging, performed during initial workup, remains unremarkable most of the time.
