    By taking a good history, the patient will present with periumbilical pain then radiating to the right iliac fossa and localising there, nausea vomiting and fever also constipation. In examination we can elicit rebound tenderness in mcbernie s point and tenderness and guarding in the right iliac fossa. We can come to the diagnosis by an increased white blood cell count and and USS showing an inflamed appendix
