Synopsis: 
The aetiology of appendicitis is multifactorial, although it is affected by several precursor factors. While there are several known factors in acute appendicitis, the cause cannot be identified in some cases. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether allergic diseases cause a disposition to appendicitis.
