Acute appendicitis is one of the most common intra-abdominal emergencies seen in the surgical department, which can be treated easily if an accurate diagnosis is made in time; otherwise delay in diagnosis and treatment can lead to gangrene, perforation and diffuse peritonitis. Hyperbilirubinemia is the result of imbalance between production and excretion of bilirubin by the liver and since the liver receive the blood from the portal venous system which carry it from intra-abdominal organ, so any intra-abdominal infection including the acute appendicitis could lead to hyperbilirubinemia. In this prospective study, the role of TSB as a marker for acute appendicitis was evaluated.
