This 58-year-old woman had abdominopelvic computed tomography and vaginal ultrasound investigations suspicious of a right ovarian tumour. Her CA 125 level was normal. At laparotomy there was an extraluminal tumour of the mid-jejunum that was resected with end-to-end anastomosis. Possible diagnoses included malignant transformation in a Meckel’s diverticulum or secondary tumour of the small bowel. Histology with immunohistochemistry revealed a high-grade gastrointestinal tumour. The patient received adjuvant imatinib therapy.
