Amoebic chronic appendicitis: a rare entity

M Krishna
2016 Journal of Pathology of Nepal  
<p>Rarely intestinal parasites can cause acute appendicitis. Amoebic appendicitis is rare and infection with Entamoeba Histolytica usually develops as an extension of caecal infection. I report a rare case of amoebic chronic appendicitis diagnosed on histopathology examination. It mimics the features of acute pappendicitis but may not always be responsible for acute appendicitis</p>
