Tumors of the appendix are rare malignancies and are usually discovered at the pathology examination of the surgical specimen. Appendix tumors are usually very small and located inside of the appendix. The occurrence of disseminated tumor of the appendix is a rare event and it is very difficult to diagnose preoperatively and most female patients are diagnosed as having a gynecologic disease like late stage ovarian carcinoma. We report a case of primary adenocarcinoma of appendix in a 76 years old woman who was preoperatively misdiagnosed as having a late stage ovarian carcinoma.
