Cecal pathology is commonly encountered and may represent a diagnostic challenge in patients with either acute or chronic clinical presentations. Although appendicitis accounts for the majority of surgical conditions presenting with right lower quadrant pain, readers should be aware of the broad spectrum of cecal pathologies and characteristic CT findings, which can be useful in establishing the correct diagnosis.
