Objectives: For perforated appendicitis in children, microbiological cultures should always be sought if an adequate sample is available. Knowledge of local epidemiology is important for optimal selection of antimicrobial therapy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the aetiology and susceptibility of pathogens in paediatric patients with perforated appendicitis.
