Vermiform appendix
In human anatomy, the appendix (or vermiform appendix; also cecal (or caecal)
appendix; also vermix) is a blind-ended tube connected to the cecum (or caecum),
from which it develops embryologically. The cecum is a pouchlike structure of the
colon. The appendix is near the junction of the small intestine and the large intestine.
The appendix averages 10 cm in length, but can range from 2 to 20 cm. The
diameter of the appendix is usually between 7 and 8 mm. The appendix is located in
the lower right quadrant of the abdomen, or more specifically, the right iliac fossa the
position within the abdomen corresponds to a point on the surface known as
McBurney's point. While the base of the appendix is at a fairly constant location, 2 cm
below the ileocaecal valve, the location of the tip of the appendix can vary from being
retrocaecal to being in the pelvis to being extraperitoneal. In rare individuals with situs
inversus, the appendix may be located in the lower left side.
Maintaining gut flora: major function
Although it was long accepted that the immune tissue, called gut associated lymphoid
tissue, surrounding the appendix and elsewhere in the gut carries out a number of
important functions
The digestive tract's immune system is often referred to as gut-associated lymphoid
tissue (GALT) and works to protect the body from invasion. GALT is an example of
mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue.
The mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) (also called mucosa-associated
lymphatic tissue) is the diffuse system of small concentrations of lymphoid tissue found
in various sites of the body such as the gastrointestinal tract, thyroid, breast, lung,
salivary glands, eye, and skin.
