A 34 year old woman presents to the Emergency Department with a 3 day history of right iliac fossa pain. An outpatient pelvic ultrasound showed a right ovarian cyst with some fluid in the pouch of Douglas. The ruptured ovarian cyst was thought to be the cause of her pain. A point of care ultrasound shows that the maximum point of tenderness is over an inflamed appendix.
