Acute abdomen refers to the clinical situation in which an acute change in the condition of the intra abdominal organ, usually related to inflammation or infection , demands immediate and accuratediagnosis , withacute abdominal pain present forless than 6-8 hours. Cope in 1921 wrote that ?the majority of severe abdominal pain which ensure in patients who have been previously fairly well and which lasts as long as 6 hours are caused by conditions of surgical importance. Success in treatment of acute abdomen depends largely on early diagnosis with early intervention and good post operative care. Sir Henles aphorism is that In acute abdominal emergencies, the difference between the best and worst surgery is infinitely less, than between early and late surgery and greatest sacrifice is sacrifice of time.
