BACKGROUND: Review of our cases of appendicitis with pregnancy. METHODS: Between june 1990 and may 2001, eighteen cases were investigated, retrospectively. RESULTS: Six patients were in first trimester, 10 in second trimester and 2 in third trimester. Mean age was 25. Sixteen cases (88.9%) were acute appendicitis and 2 cases (11.1%) were perforated appendicitis. The time interval between the onset of complaints and operation was 1.6 days. There were no fetal or maternal mortality. One of perforated appendicitis developed wound infection and two developed atelectasis.
