She consulted for chronic cyclic pelvic pain, which had been evolving for a year, located in the right iliac fossa.

The CA125 was high. Surgical exploration found an enlarged, reddish appendix with multiple pelvic adhesions. The uterus and appendages were free from macroscopically detectable abnormalities.
