We report a case of acute abdomen in an elderly patient that was admitted with the presumptive diagnosis of cecum neoplasm versus complicated acute appendicitis. In the histologic examination, after right hemicolectomy, we made the diagnosis of complicated amoebic appendicitis. In this case report we present the classic clinical manifestations and histopathologic findings of this rare presentation of amoebic infection.
