A 51-year-old gravida 5 para 5 (5005) presented with an increasing abdominal girth and a palpable abdominal mass. She was initially diagnosed with ovarian new growth and underwent exploratory laparotomy. Intraoperatively, the uterus, Fallopian tubes, and ovaries were grossly normal and a large mass was seen attached to the cecum where the appendix should be referral to surgery service was done. Right hemicolectomy and ileostomy were performed. The histopathology report was "suggestive of a Müllerian adenosarcoma (MAS) involving the appendix and cecum." Microscopic examination showed evidence of endometriosis with no evidence of sarcomatous overgrowth, features that are favorable prognostic factors associated with higher disease-free survival. Postoperatively, the plan of management was hormonal therapy. Extragenital MAS is rare. This case is the fourth case to be reported in the literature to arise from the colon. Although there is still no standard of treatment, accurate diagnosis is imperative for appropriate management.
