 en Missed Intra Uterine Device: A Rare Indication for Appendicectomy- Case Report with Review of Literature
Singhal, S.R.; Marwah, D.S.; Paul, A. & Singhal, S.K.


Appendicitis is a common indication for appendicectomy. Other indications are mucocele, faecoliths, calculi and tumors. Intra Uterine Device (IUD) perforation is a rare complication of IUD and it may perforate and lodge in the appendix leading to IUD appendicitis which is a rare indication for appendicectomy. We review the literature and report a case in which appendicectomy was done for IUD appendicitis due to missed IUD.
