The difference between these two diagnosis seems to be obvious, though this is only on the face of it. This small story shows that sometimes one symptoms could be confused with others. The emergency doctors were called by the parents of a 17-year-old girl who complained about her stomach. Though, when the emergency help arrived, the medical staff was a bit confused: the doctors understood that the girl should not be rescued from appendicitis, but it was high time for her to bear.
As it turned out, within nine months, parents knew nothing about their daughter’s pregnancy and decided she had appendicitis. The doctors arrived just in time. They rendered necessary assistance, as a result, a healthy girl was born. The doctors transported the mother and the child to maternity hospital.
