|Description||Acute appendicitis accounts for the commonest indication for emergency visits during daily surgical practice. Breast feeding is very important both mother and the child. For the infant, breast feeding has an important role on the maturity of immune system. In the literature search, there are a little studies about the relationship between the breast feeding and appendicitis. In the literature, some studies suggests that the breast feeding may possibly give protection against the development of appendicitis. But the number of the patients and the control groups are limited. Because of that the investigators have planned to make this study with a lot of number of patients.|
