We report a case of cancer of the caecum in a 71-year-old male who presented with parietal mesh abscess. Two years before, he was treated for a right inguinal hernia by insertion of a Dacron mesh. CT scan then colonoscopy determined the existence of a voluminous caecal tumor perforated in the abdominal wall with an important abscess around the mesh. Right colectomy and parietal muscles excision were performed completed with postoperative radiochemotherapy. At 2 years, there is no evidence of recurrence. Atypical features with a hernia mesh repair associated with a sudden change in the patient's condition should alert the clinician to the possibility of a further subjacent pathological process.
