Abstract
Appendiceal orifice inflammation (AOI) may occur as a skipped lesion in ulcerative colitis (UC). Cases of ulcerative colitis complicated by Wilson's disease have also been reported. We report herein a case of AOI that occurred as a missed lesion in an 8-year-old girl with UC complicating Wilson's disease, which is rare in children. (Gut Liver 2010;4:126-128)
Keywords: Inflammatory bowel disease; Ulcerative colitis; Orifice of appendix; Child; Hepatolenticular degeneration
