  • MUCOCELE OF THE APPENDIX - IMAGING FINDINGS AMERICAN JOURNAL OF ROENTGENOLOGY MADWED, D., Mindelzun, R., Jeffrey, R. B. 1992; 159 (1): 69-72

    Abstract:

    Mucocele of the appendix, a cystic mass resulting from a dilated appendiceal lumen caused by abnormal accumulation of mucus, is a rare entity that often is not considered when problems of the right lower quadrant are assessed. Preoperative recognition of mucocele of the appendix is important because of the possibility of rupture at surgery with development of pseudomyxoma peritonei and to predict malignant transformation. The appearances of mucoceles of the appendix on sonography, CT, and barium studies are illustrated.
