Functions of the appendix (What is appendix for?)

Appendicitis is an inflammation of the appendix, a small pouch located at the beginning of the large intestine, which is known as blind.

Appendicitis requires surgically removing of the appendix in order that it does not end up bursting and produces an infection of the abdomen, called peritonitis, which can have extreme consequences.

Appendicitis is uncommon in young people, especially men and, within these adolescents and young people aged 20 years.

Though very rare in young children, it may also occur and in this case it is more difficult to diagnose because their symptoms are often atypical.

The removal of the appendix is not a problem since it has no organic function.
