Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This is a report of a 47-year-old woman with an asymptomatic clinical presentation of appendiceal intussusception secondary to endometriosis. Initially discovered during routine colonoscopy as a submucosal mass, it was ultimately diagnosed after surgical resection by pathology findings. The theories regarding the pathogenesis of appendiceal intussusception are reviewed and discussed here.
