Abstract

A primigravid woman at 35 weeks' gestation was admitted with abdominal pain, fever, and vomiting. Forceful contractions and signs of fetal distress suggested abruptio placentae. During cesarean section, seropurulent exudate and a perforated appendix were found; an appendectomy was performed. A mechanism linking appendicitis with abruptio placentae is suggested.
