Appendicitis is an affliction that affects many children. Although it is very painful, it can be treated effectively and without permanent damage, if diagnosed quickly and correctly by the treating physician. If misdiagnosed or not treated efficiently in children, appendicitis can result in serious organ damage and can be fatal.
