Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Abstract
Aim: In this study, we aimed to examine to what extent total bilirubin (TB) measurements can help us in diagnosing perforated appendicitis.
Material and Methods: The TB levels of the patients for whom a surgery was planned with a preliminary diagnosis of appendicitis, were measured and then recorded. The patients with a TB level of 1.20 mg/dL and below were considered “normal”, and those with a TB value of 1.21 mg/dL and above were considered “high”. The appendectomy materials were divided into three groups, namely nonappendicitis, perforated appendicitis and non-perforated appendicitis, according to postoperative pathology report. The statistical correlation between the postoperative pathological findings of appendectomy materials and the groups formed according to TB results was analyzed.
Results: Of the patients included in our study, 80 (46%) were female and 96 (54%) were male. The average age was 27.48±12.08 years, and the median age was 25 years. As per the pathology report, 15 patients had no appendicitis (negative laparotomy), 2 (13%) of whom had a high TB level whereas 24 patients had perforated appendicitis, 8 (33%) of whom had a high TB level and 135 patients had non-perforated appendicitis, 28 (21%) of whom had a high TB level.
Conclusion: Our study found that the TB level in perforated appendicitis was 1.6 times higher than that in non-perforated appendicitis and 2.5 times higher than that in negative laparatomies. The bilirubin value differences between the groups were statistically significant (p 0.05).
Keywords: Acute Appendicitis; Perforation; Hyperbilirubinemia.
