Özet

Study Objective: There has been no clear-cut value of the white blood cell (WBC) count in differential diagnosis of acute appendicitis in emergency medicine. Therefore, the aim of this study was to assess the preoperative WBC counts in 3 groups of patients operated on for a clinical suspicion of acute appendicitis with different findings at appendectomy: uninflamed appendix, uncomplicated acute appendicitis, or complicated acute appendicitis.
