Abstract

We report on a 35-year old women with severe abdominal pain, cramps, diarrhea with blood and a palpable paraumbilical resistance. The symptoms appeared a few days before admission and were recurrent within the last two years. The abdominal ultrasound showed a target sign with a thickened wall from the right to the left colon flexure with inhomogeneous reflexes. The CT-scan and barium enema showed an intussusception of the colon. After hemicolectomy of the right colon a 6 × 4 × 4 cm exophytic tumor near the ileocoecal valve was detected. Histologically the tumor was diagnosed as adenocarcinoma of the coecum (pT2pNOpMX G2).
