Rosenstein's sign is a sign of acute appendicitis.
It is observed, when tenderness in the right lower quadrant increases when the patient moves from the supine position to a recumbent posture on the left side.
The sign is named after the almost forgotten Jewish german physician and director of The Jewish Hospital, Berlin, Paul Rosenstein (1875-1964). Sitkovskiy's symptom is the equivalent symptom.
