Indira Mehmedagic, Amra Mestric

Abstract

Mucionous appendiceal neoplasms are rare entity with different prognostic value. Surgery offers the optimal treatment for mucionus neoplasms in patient with no metastatic disease. We present the case of patient with mucinous appendicel neoplasm that had prior been undergone to hysterectomy and adnexectomy. Considering the intraoperative finding and no signs of perforation or metastatic disease appendiceal resection with the resection margin high on appendiceal basis was performed. No further oncological treatment was necessary.
