We report a rare case of disseminated peritoneal adenomucinosis presenting as an inguino-scrotal mass. Imaging studies showed the presence of a mass, with liquid content, expanding from right colon into the retrovesical space and downward into the right inguinal canal. Intraoperatively, we observed and removed an appendiceal gelatinous mass. The inguinal-scrotal mass consisted of a hernial sac filled with mucinous material. Histological examination allowed the diagnosis of peritoneal adenomucinosis.

Abstract

We report a rare case of disseminated peritoneal adenomucinosis presenting as an inguino-scrotal mass. Imaging studies showed the presence of a mass, with liquid content, expanding from right colon into the retrovesical space and downward into the right inguinal canal. Intraoperatively, we observed and removed an appendiceal gelatinous mass. The inguinal-scrotal mass consisted of a hernial sac filled with mucinous material. Histological examination allowed the diagnosis of peritoneal adenomucinosis.
