Elderly patients may lack the febrile response, leukocytosis, and severity of pain expected in those suffering from serious intra-abdominal pathology as a result of the age-dependent decline in immune function [26] along with a well-documented delay in pain perception [27]. The atypical presentation commonly seen in these patients may also be attributed to the effects of other, coexisting medical conditions and medications. For example, beta blockers may blunt the normal tachycardic response to acute abdominal processes while nonsteroidal agents and acetaminophen may prevent the development of a fever.
