Patients with the right side of colonic malignancy commonly present with obstruction and bleeding. At times, in 4% of cases, they may present with perforation. Presentation with symptoms other than these is rare. Besides atypical presentations of colonic malignancy are associated with poor prognosis. We present a case report of a retroperitoneal abscess following a perforated ascending colon malignancy as a primary presentation of carcinoma of ascending colon.
