Case Study
A 66-year-old patient had an incidentally detected caecal neuroendocrine tumour that had metastasised to the liver and left atrium. He was asymptomatic with regard to this tumour and did not have carcinoid syndrome. Resection of the primary tumour and the metastatic deposits (with the ablation of one lesion) is thought to be curative.

    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.
