A 38-year-old female presented with intermittent abdominal pain and rectal bleeding and found to have severe anemia. The computerized tomography of abdomen and pelvis with contrast showed a solid mass measuring 5.4 × 3.4 × 3.1 cm in the cecum (Figure 1, left). The colonoscopy revealed a large protruding lesion with ulceration in the right colon (Figure 1,right). Multiple biopsies of the ulcerated area were obtained.
