Images show an abscess in the retrocecal location with an adjacent appendicolith. The ascending colon is displaced anteriorly.
Abscess formation is one of the complications of appendicitis following rupture of the inflamed and distended appendix.
An appendicular abscess can be managed by either surgical drainage or by image guided percutaneous drainage. The appendix is subsequently removed at interval appendectomy.
