Adenocarcinoma of the appendix is a rare neoplasm. Metastatic adenocarcinoma of the appendix from stomach adenocarcinoma is also a very rare finding. A 72-year-old man complained of right lower quadrant abdominal pain for 10 days, and he was diagnosed with acute appendicitis. Appendectomy was performed by a general surgeon. Adenocarcinoma was found on the postoperative biopsy. Subsequently, gastric adenocarcinoma was diagnosed on the gastroscopy with biopsy, and this was proven to be the original site of the appendiceal adenocarcinoma.
