Tube cecostomy as a cause of cecal pseudotumor

Journal Article

A 60-year-old male presented with findings on radiographic and physical examination which were compatible with colonic obstruction. A tube cecostomy was performed. Colonoscopy seven months later revealed a pseudotumor composed of granulation tissue in the cecum at the site of the previous cecostomy.
