This video shows the case of a 40-year-old woman complaining of pain in the right iliac fossa. Clinical history and complementary exams were suggestive of an appendicitis alleviated by an antibiotic treatment. However, they did not contribute to rule out the presence of a mucoid tumor of the appendix or of any gynecologic origin. The laparoscopic approach makes it possible to define the etiology of the lesion and to treat it. A centripetal strategy is used to safely perform the resection of this appendicular phlegmon.
