Open Access Biomedical Publisher Using Post Publication Peer Review
Well written, to the point and informative case report of a commonly encountered pathology with specific relevance to adults. Agree with the neccessity to carry out CT scans on all right iliac fossae masses in adults to avoid missing underlying malignant pathology.
I have 10 years expererience in general and emergency surgery, dealing with abdominal masses and managing the various presentations of appendicular pathology.
A very interesting case, very well written but no so original
A more systematic and consistent referencing style is preferred. The underlined segment of the references are in different format. I think it can be improved.
