Abstract:   (2536 Views)
A 70 year old male presented with right lower quadrant pain and anorexia for about 72 hours prior to hospital admission. He underwent laparotomy with impression of acute appendicitis. The operative finding was an inflamed tumoral appendix without appendicular base involvement, and appendectomy was done. The patient had an uneventful post-op course. Due to the pathology report of prostatic carcinoma he underwent cystoscopy and biopsy of prostate on the 4th post-op day. Histopathology of the appendix was consistent with metastatic adenocarcinoma of the appendix with prostatic origin. Histopathology of the prostatic specimen was consistent with high grade prostatic adenocarcinoma.
