Amoebome Iléocaecal : un cas diagnostiqué par l'anatomie pathologique et la biologie moléculaire

Abstract : Colonic ameboma is a rare benign inflammatory tumor due to the infection by Entamoeba histolytica and poses frequently the problem of colon cancer. We report a case of a 52-year-old patient who pre-sented a cecal amoeboma revealed by a painful mass in the right iliac fossa. Radiologic and endoscopic examinations depicted a parietal thickening of the right colon and the cecum. A presumptive diagnosis of colon cancer was firstly discussed. Confirmation of ameboma was made on patholo-gical examination, PCR and serology.
