Case Study
A cavernous hemangioma of the cecum is a rare vascular malformation but is clinically important because of the possibility of massive bleeding. We report a case of a large cavernous hemangioma with pericolic infiltration in the cecum which was removed successfully using minimally invasive surgery.
