Abstract

The authors report a case of a ruptured retrocecal appendix presenting with pylephlebitis, portal-mesenteric thrombosis, and multiple liver abscesses in an 8-year-old boy. A right hemicolectomy was performed, and liver abscesses were drained. The patient was treated with long-term antibiotics and anticoagulation. This the only case of perforated appendicitis associated with these 3 morbid complications in the modern literature.
