Abstract

The following study presents the case of a 58-year-old woman who was diagnosed, during the diagnosis of an ovarian tumor, with mucous metastatic adenocarcinoma of the appendix. Due to the severity of the disease and the low degree of differentiation of the cancer, the treatment of the patient required a continuous and intensive systemic treatment lasting three years. A significant role in the course of the disease was also played by surgical interventions, since the patient underwent 4 reoperations due to local recurrence. The history of the disease is an example of the problems in the therapy and diagnosis of atypical tumors resulting from non-specific symptoms and different evolution of the disease.
