抄録

An 11-year-old girl presented with recurrent right lower quadrant (RLQ) pain. There was no evidence of inflammation and appendiceal swelling except at the initial onset. The repeated presence of a small amount of ascites at the time of abdominal pain triggered the performance of exploratory laparoscopy. Intraoperative examination revealed a non-inflamed, unswollen appendix with a cord-like atretic segment at the middle part and an appendectomy was performed. At 46 months follow-up, she remained asymptomatic. In patients with recurrent RLQ pain of unknown cause, it is necessary to consider diagnostic laparoscopy while keeping appendiceal atresia in mind as a differential diagnosis.
