Abstract

A 38 years old lady presented to her local hospital with acute abdominal pain. To evaluate the cause of her abdominal pain, she had a computed tomography (CT) scan of her abdomen that showed thickening of the distal portion of the transverse colon. For further evaluation, patient underwent colonoscopy that revealed a circumferential colonic mass in the distal portion of the colon that was suspicious for colon cancer. The colonic mass was biopsied and tissue pathology reported adenocarcinoma. Subsequently, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of her abdomen was obtained that showed the presence of numerous lesions throughout the liver. She underwent laparoscopic hemicolectomy and subsequently chemotherapy with significant improvement of her symptoms and disease burden.
