AbstractIndividually, trauma and appendicitis are some of the most common conditions in clinical practice, particularly in emergency medicine. In rare cases, trauma and appendicitis may co-exist, imposing a dilemma of whether these are only coincidence or appendicitis develops because of trauma. We report here a case of acute perforated appendicitis after a blunt abdominal trauma caused by a horse hoof kick to the abdomen in a 7-year-old boy. We also discussed the potential pathophysiologic mechanisms behind and reviewed the literature on this rare condition.
