* Creator/RingoStarr, drummer of the Music/TheBeatles, nearly died at age six from peritonitis; he missed a year of school while recovering and remained sickly for most of his childhood as a result. It was his constant illnesses and inability to catch up academically that played a big role in him turning to music.

* ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai'' has an excellent example: The main villain of the third movie, [[spoiler: Fujino Asagami]], has a severe case of appendicitis, which leads her to believe she'd been stabbed. (It's complicated.) By the end of the episode, her condition has worsened to a point where even immediate attention is pointless; she's vomiting blood and barely able to crawl. And that's before we mention the killer chasing her, or the repeated rapes she endured previously. [[spoiler:It ends comparably well for her, when Ryougi Shiki (who can literally kill any''thing'') kills ''appendicitis'' inside Fujino and saves her life.]]

* In one of the ''Jonathan Cap'' books by Francois Rivier, the local PluckyGirl Juliette ''nearly'' develops this and she's sent to a luxurious private clinic for treatment. [[spoiler: It almost happens for real when she, Jonathan, Alex and Nico are investigating the clinic at her request; she tries to help out Jonathan when he's forcibly given sleeping drugs, but she near collapses in pain. Thankfully her appendix remains in one piece and she recovers.]]

* Bright Abbot has this happen in the first season of ''Series/{{Everwood}}'', but it's not sudden and immediate; he's shown having stomach pains at the beginning of the episode but goes to his grandmother's birthday party anyway. Andy and Harold realize the appendix is inflamed and it only bursts when Bright tries to get up. Andy ends up removing it himself in his office, and Bright recovers.

When Mrs. Zimmerman gets to the hospital, [[spoiler: it's revealed that the pain was too high to have been her appendix.
