A general overview of mucocele of appendix.

J Family Med Prim Care 2020 Dec 31;9(12):5867-5871. Epub 2020 Dec 31.

Consultant Surgeon, Private Clinic, Katara, Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, India.

Mucocele of the appendix is a very rare disease entity that often discovered incidentally during surgery. It can result from both non-neoplastic and neoplastic lesions and histopathological examination is needed for confirmation. Failure to make an early preoperative diagnosis may results in its rapture and spillage of mucin contents into the peritoneal cavity leading to a disastrous complication of pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) that has a very bad prognosis.
