We report the case of a 67-year-old woman who presented with an apparent bladder tumor and complaints of increased urinary frequency and postvoiding pain. Her diagnostic work-up revealed conflicting findings regarding the source of her bladder disease, and laparoscopy was required to make the final diagnosis of appendicitis. The presentation of appendicitis can be disguised and is often a difficult diagnosis.
