ABSTRACT: A 10 year old boy presented with clinical features suggestive of an abdominal wall abscess. Exploration after investigations revealed a perforation in the sigmoid colon. Review after one month with a diverting colostomy revealed a tumor-mass under the scar, which proved to be a mucin secreting adenocarcinoma of the sigmoid colon.
