Abstract

We report a resected case of cancer at the ileum of the blind loop. An 81-year-old male underwent an appendectomy for acute appendicitis and an ileotransverse colostomy for postoperative obstruction when he was 14 years old. He underwent radiation therapy for prostate cancer when he was 75 years old. Six years later, enhanced computed tomography revealed a 7 cm mass in the ileum of the blind loop. Colonoscopy showed wall thickening at the ileum of the blind loop, and biopsy revealed an adenocarcinoma. We performed partial resection of the ileum. The patient was discharged 17 days after surgery. Cancer at the ileum of the blind loop after an ileotransverse colostomy has rarely been reported.
