Delayed Presentation of Perforation Peritonitis (Caecum
and Ascending Colon) After A Blunt Trauma
Preoperatively, appendix, caecum
and ascending colon were not found in right lower abdomen and small gut loops were found in right lower abdomen (fig-1c).
When the droppings turn into bloody diarrhoea, it means the parasites have caused ulcers and other tissue damage in the wall of the caecum
resulting in bleeding.

Correlations between wet and dry digesta load in all compartments were not significant (r<0.5), except for correlations between wet digesta load in the rumen and abomasum, caecum
and omasum, large intestines and colon which were significant and r>0.5.

The patient had a polyp of the caecum
opposite the ileocecal valve identified by colonoscopy.
The acute colonic pseudoobstruction (ACPO), nonobstructive colonic dilatation, or Ogilvie's syndrome is a rare entity that is characterized by acute dilatation of the colon, usually involving caecum
and right hemicolon in the absence of any mechanical obstruction (80-90%), abdominal pain (80%), abdominal tenderness (62%), nausea and/or vomiting (60%), constipation (40%), and fever (37%).
Operative findings revealed 5 x 4 cm solid thin pedicled, well encapsulated, and mobile mass arising from the caecum
, without being adherent to surrounding bowel loops or other structures (Figure 3).
There was no effect of any dietary treatment on caecum
levels of acetate (Figure 4(a)).

Sometimes it runs out to be gangrenous caecum
, ileocaecal tuberculosis, Crohn's disease, Meckle's diverticulum, non rotated gut, volvulus of caecum
, tubo ovarian mass, even ureteric stone.
