Same symptoms: Appenicolith usually cause at either site andseen on x-ray. On inception, mucosa involved and symtoms referred peri-umbilical. When outer sera involved, pain localized to RLQ. If laparoscopic approach then retrocecal harderr to remove. Frequetly IV antibiotics used only unless perforation suspected..
