We report a case of acute appendicitis due to recurrent metastatic gastric adenocarcinoma involving only appendix, without the evidence of abdominal carcinomatosis 2 years after initial diagnosis of the primary gastric lesion. This case, in contrast to other previously reported cases that carried a dismal prognosis, had survived without tumour recurrent for more than 1 year after appendectomy, while this report was made.
