The original publication is available at http://www.samj.org.za
Two neonates with acute appendicitis have been treated at the Paediatric Surgery Clinic, Tygerberg Hospital, during the past 6 months. One presented with red blood in the stool and had had persistent anorexia for 1 week. The second baby presented with a large tender swelling of the scrotum which was indistinguishable from a torsion of the testis or strangulation of an inguinal hernia. Both babies made an uneventful recovery.
