Intussusception of the appendix is a rare condition with an incidence of approximately 0.01%. In adults, the lead point for the intussusception is most frequently endometriosis, whereas in children, acute inflammation of the appendix is usually the cause (76%). This case report presents a 41-year-old woman who was referred to hospital care primarily due to blood in her stool and a 1 × 3 cm polypous tumour in her caecum, observed during colonoscopy. She had no gynaecologic history and a normal exam. A right-sided hemicolectomy was performed and pathology showed endometriosis and acute and chronic inflammation.
