Epiploic appendices are small, fat-filled sacs or finger-like projections along the surface of the lower colon and rectum. They may become acutely inflamed as a result of torsion - this is Epiploic Appendagitis.
I agree appendages are congenital, but this inflamation (Epiploic Appendagitis) are not congenital .
Appendix is present for all humans till their life time , but appendicitis is diffrent . i.e. inflamation or infection is aquired . Like Sinus is normally present for all humans , but Sinusitis affects some people.
Also I agree with many conditions were present from birth till their life time .
But in this case the inflamation was not present from birth.
This does'nt mean i am not agree with you, but your answer needs more explanation.
I think you answer is 751.5 not 715.5. please explain more clearly.
