Abstract: Introduction: Acute appendicitis is one of the common acute abdominal emergencies. Therefore there is a need of a scoring system with good sensitivity and specificity that can overcome the problem of negative appendicectomy on exploration. The study was conducted to evaluate the association between the Alvarado score (AS) and severity of appendicitis in patients with acute appendicitis. Aim: To study the association between the Alvarado score (AS) and severity of appendicitis in patients with acute appendicitis who undergoes surgery. Patients and Methods: 50 patients undergoing emergency appendecectomy who met the inclusion criteria were included in the study. Alvarado score were noted preoperatively. Intraoperative gross findings were noted and severity of appendicitis was assessed. Result: All 50 patients underwent positive appendecectomy. In our study it was seen that increase in the Alvarado score is associated with increase in severity of intra operative findings of acute appendicitis. Conclusion: . In our study the association between Alvarado score and severity of acute appendicitis is statistically significant with a p value of <0.001. So Alvarado score is a good indicator for predicting the severity of acute appendicitis
