-The appendix is a narrow, finger-shaped tube in the first part of the large intestine. Sometimes, it can become inflamed, but the reason for this is not really known. The appendix swells up, becomes infected, may be filled with pus, and may burst. This is called appendicitis. The child must be operated on so that the infected appendix can be removed.
