Core Tip Xanthogranulomatous inflammation (XGI) is a disease of unknown origin, most frequently described in the kidney and gallbladder, and extremely rare in the colon. The extension of inflammation to the surrounding tissues may lead to misdiagnosis as cancer. We report the case of a 56-year-old woman presenting to the Emergency Department with pain, increased levels of acute-phase proteins, and a palpable mass in the right lower abdominal quadrant. Computed tomography showed a large cecal mass with necrotic areas and enlarged lymph nodes. Due to suspicion of malignancy and worsening of the clinical conditions, she underwent right colectomy. Pathology revealed XGI of the ileocecal valve.
