Abstract

Introduction: Infection and inflammation of organs adjacent to gastrointestinal tract may
cause a pathological connection.
Patient: In this report, complicated appendicitis caused protrusion of right ovary and tube
into the sigmoid colon of a 40-year-old infertile woman. The mass appearing as a polypoid
lesion during colonoscopy caused abdominal pain and bleeding and proved to be right
adnexa pathologically.
Conclusion: In many cases ruptured appendicitis, adnexa may protrude in large intestine
lumen and mimic rectal polyp symptoms associated with infertility, hence a precise history
taking and accurate colonoscopy may aid in diagnosis of this condition.
