A 80-year-old women was seen at our hospital because she noticed a right lower abdominal mass and three months earlier. Physical examination revealed a mass with a tenderness . Except for anemia detected on admission, there was no biochemical abnormalities. High levels of tumor markers were noted ; CEA was 16.4 ng/ml.
