抄録

A 50-year-old woman who was given a diagnosis of acute appendicitis was referred to our hospital. Because an abdominal enhanced CT revealed a dilated and cystic lesion in the appendix, operation was performed under the diagnosis of the suspicion of acute appendicitis or appendiceal mucocele. We performed laparoscopic cecal resection because of the intraoperative diagnosis of intussusception of the appendix. On the resected specimen, an elevated lesion was identified near the base of appendix. Histopathologically it was shown to be a true diverticulum in which the proper muscle layer are intact To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of true diverticulosis of the appendix with intussusception in the Japanese literature.
