Peritonitis




Definition

Inflammation of the peritoneum, which is a serous sac that lines the abdominal cavity and most of the viscera contained therein.


Causes

Inflamed viceral organ rupture, such as the appendix, will spread the inflammation throughout the abdominal cavity. This sets off an acute inflammation of the peritoneum.


Symptoms

Peritonitis is a very painful condition accompanied by vomiting and a racing pulse rate. The abdomen becomes swollen and tight like a board. The patient's life is in danger at this point and must be hospitalized immediately. Provided the patient is in good health otherwise, a skillful surgeon will have a good chance to pull the patient through.
