Acute appendicitis I one of the most common causes of the acute abdomen. Leukocytosis is present in most of cases of a cute appendicitis. We studied 94 patients, males were 64.9% and females were 35.1%. Their age range was 8-75 years. Patients with neutrophilia were 80 patients (85.1%) and only 14 patients (14.9%) were with normal TWBCS. Strong positive CRP at presentation was found in (93.6%), and positive CRP was (4.3%) and two patients present with normal CRP. Final diagnosis of acute appendicitis in 79 patients (84%), perforated appendix found in 10 patients (10.6%) and appendicular mass in 5 patients (5.3%). Clinical symptoms’ and signs of acute appendicitis can be confirmed by WBCS and CRP tests before doing unnecessary operations.
