Long cecum with its pole reaching deep into the true pelvis within the pouch of Douglas and abutting the dorsal surface of the uterus.
Mobile cecum is defined as a failure of cecum, terminal ileum, and right colon along with the mesentery to fuse to the posterior parietal peritoneal wall.
It is most commonly asymptomatic but does carry a risk of cecal volvulus.
