This video demonstrates the laparoscopic treatment of a retrocaecal appendicitis with disseminated peritonitis. This is the case of a 45-year-old patient presenting with an appendicular peritonitis. The patient, who had no previous medical history, was referred to emergencies with a pain syndrome of the right iliac fossa, fever, tachycardia and hyperleukocytosis. The CT-scan identified a retrocaecal infiltration and a voluminous appendicitis. The appendicitis, situated in a retrocaecal position, was going towards a suprahepatic position.
