The reported prevalence at appendectomy is 0. They are thought to typically present in middle-aged individuals, particularly considering the epidemiology of the mucinous neoplasms. Though carcinoid tumor is the most common primary appendiceal neoplasm in surgical pathology series, mucoceles due to neoplasms are the most common appendiceal tumors detected on imaging 7. The term mucocele is simply a macroscopic description of an appendix that is grossly distended by mucus 7,

Does it matter if it is appendix mucocele instead of appendicitis? Aims: Appendiceal mucocele AM is a rare pathology, and its reported incidence is 0. Here, we report a case series of AM and make a brief review of literature. Subjects and Methods: We conducted a retrospective review of a prospectively collected data of patients who diagnosed as AM by histopathological evaluation between January and June were demographic data including age and gender, intraoperative findings, and histopathological reports were recorded.
All cases were followed-up by routine examination and telephone interview. Statistical Analysis Used: Definitive statistical methods mean, standard deviation, median, frequency, and percentage were used to evaluate the study data. Results: Twelve patients were examined in the study with diagnose of AM. The mean age was Female-to-male ratio was 1. Indications for surgery were acute abdomen in 8 Histopathological evaluation revealed mucinous cystadenoma in eight patients, simple retention cysts in three, and borderline mucinous tumor pseudomyxoma peritonei in one.
The neuroendocrine tumor was obtained on the remaining portion of the appendix in one of the simple retention cysts patients. None of the patients died because of the AM with an average follow-up of 43 months range: 7— Conclusions: Surgical resection is the first choice therapy for AM.
Precise treatment modality can remain unclear in some patients because of insufficient preoperative diagnosis. It is nonmalign AM mostly however having mucocele matters because of the significant association with synchronous tumors.

Two cases of mucocele of the appendix are presented with a discussion of the histologic and radiologic features as well as the surgical management. Case 1. A year-old man presented to the emergency department at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas with a 1-day history of cramping abdominal pain with nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
