Abdominal ultrasound revealed a fixed tubular structure in the right iliac fossa with loss of layer differentiation, showing an axial diameter of 13mm and associated inflammatory signs of the pericecal fat, compatible with acute appendicitis. Ultrasound also detected the presence of appendiceal diverticula (Fig. 1).
