Right iliac fossa (RIF) mass is a common case scenario in surgical practice with a wide range of differentials. Colon carcinoma, appendicular lump, ileocecal tuberculosis, and tubo-ovarian mass are among the common diagnoses. Diverticulosis of the colon presents as an abdominal mass when complicated by perforation, abscess formation, obstruction, or giant transformation. This report describes the case of a giant colonic diverticulum at cecum in a 30-year-old male presenting as a huge RIF mass.
