A visible and palpable mass appeared in the lumbar region and drainage of the abdominal wall necrosis was performed.

Discussão

Adenocarcinoma of the appendix occurs in males over the age of 50. They present signs that suggest appendicitis. The conclusive diagnosis is reached in the postoperative period through microscopic examination (anatomopathological), and together with imaging tests the diagnosis (Tomography and Ultrasonography) is possible. The performance of right hemicolectomy, and chemotherapy are the main approaches to stage 3 colon cancer, this procedure was chosen by the hospital team.

Comentários Finais

The adenocarcinoma of the appendix observed in a 50 year-old male patient presented similar symptoms to appendicitis. As for the differential diagnosis, the described report and the literature review allow us to affirm that the complementary exams together with the anatomopathological findings are helpful in order to find the correct diagnosis. The most effective therapeutic approach has been the right hemicolectomy.
