Introduction and objectives: PEComas are very rare tumors even their location in the colon.
Material and Methods: We report a case of a 42 years old male patient with an acute abdomen and a PEComa tumor dependent of the cecum wall. He underwent emergency surgery for right hemicolectomy and mesenteric implant resection.
Discussion: PEComas (Perivascular Epithelioid Cells tumors) are rare mesenchymal neoplasms. In the digestive tract there are few cases reported in the literature.
