A computed axial tomography of the abdomen showed a mucocele of the appendix. The patient underwent a laparoscopic hemicolectomy. Histopathological examination revealed a mucinous cystadenoma of the appendix. As these carry a high risk of presence of other coexisting colorectal and ovarian malignancies, a detailed intra-operative exploration of the gastrointestinal tract, ovaries and peritoneum was conducted.
