Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report the case of a young woman hospitalized for a chronic appendicular syndrome. The histological examination of the resected specimen revealed a rare tumor: tubulovillous adenoma, discovered in 0.02% of all appendectomy procedures. Treatment is most often limited to appendectomy, but in the event of incomplete excision or associated adenocarcinoma, right hemicolectomy may be required. After surgery, a follow-up colonoscopy is recommended due to the higher risk of second gastrointestinal neoplasms in patients with appendicular tumors.
