Case Presentation: A 16-year-old boy presented with 6 days of left iliac fossa pain. He had a medical history of right subtalar dislocation and appendicitis requiring laparotomy 3 years earlier, complicated by wound dehiscence. His family history was significant for his brother's sudden death 3 weeks prior after a 12-month illness with intermittent epigastric pain, weight loss, and hemoptysis. Travel history was significant for travel to the Philippines 3 years prior, in which he spent time in the hospital for appendicitis.
