Clinilcal case: a 92 year old lady presented with massive caecal distension.

Here massive caecal dilatation was foud due to tumor of right flexure causing complete obstruction. Right hemicolectomy was performed, patient discharged on POD 7 into palliative home care.

Specimen histology was pT4aNa(1+/17) with serosa and omentum infiltration and extension into abdominal wall.
