We report a rare case of caecal obstruction in an anticoagulated elderly patient, who presented with abdominal pain and per-rectal bleeding. CT revealed obstruction in the ascending colon. The patient subsequently underwent a right hemicolectomy for a massively distended caecum containing a large intraluminal haematoma causing obstruction.
