It is a sign used for distinguishing appendicitis from adnexal or uterine pain: first find the point of maximal tenderness while patient is supine, then have the patient roll on the left lateral side. If the pain shifts medially (or towards center) with repositioning, then etiology is generally gynecologic in origin.
