3. Rabeneck L, Paszat LF: Circumstances in which colonoscopy misses cancer. Frontline Gastroenterol; 2010 Apr;1(1):52-58

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Circumstances in which colonoscopy misses cancer.
  • Colonoscopy is associated with a varying risk of missing colorectal cancer (CRC).
  • The objective of this paper was to review the existing evidence that indicates when colonoscopy may miss cancer in usual clinical practice and to provide information that would be helpful to endoscopists in their daily practice.
  • CRC is diagnosed within 3 years in about 5% of persons with CRC who undergo colonoscopy in whom the cancer is not detected.
  • Future research should be directed at disentangling the relative contributions of tumour biology and colonoscopy quality in explaining this result.
  • When consent is obtained for colonoscopy, patients must be informed of the small risk that a cancer may not be detected.
  • Colonoscopy should be completed to the caecum with documentation of landmarks (ileocaecal valve; appendiceal orifice).

  • : Endometriosis of the vermiform appendix is a rare condition.
  • The author herein reports a case of appendiceal endometriosis presenting as a tumor at the appendiceal oriffice.
  • A colon endoscopy showed a tumor in the appendiceal orifice.
  • Two biopsies of the tumor showed no remarkable changes.
  • Imaging modalities including CT and MRI also revealed an appendiceal tumor.
  • Resection of appendix, cecum, ascending colon, terminal ileum, and 16 lymph nodes were performed under the clinical diagnosis of gastrointestinal stromal tumor.
  • Grossly, a tumor measuring 3 x 3 x 3 cm was recognized in the appendiceral orifice.
  • Histologically, the tumor was endometriosis consisting of islands of endometrial glands and stroma.
  • The present case suggests that appendiceal endometriosis may present as a tumor.

  • Since an obstruction of the ileocecum was obvious, she underwent an ileocecal resection and a resection of the spindle-shaped tumor invading the left ureter.
  • The spindle-shaped tumor was considered to be due to invasion of the appendiceal cancer to the left ureter.

  • [Title] Signet ring cell carcinoma of the appendix manifesting as colonic obstruction and ovarian tumors: report of a case.
  • Appendiceal cancer is rare and associated with a poor prognosis because it is usually found at an advanced stage.
  • We report a case of appendiceal adenocarcinoma manifesting as a colonic obstruction with a lower abdominal mass.
  • Laparotomy revealed bilateral ovarian tumors and a small appendiceal tumor with peritoneal metastases.
  • We performed ileocecal resection, colectomy, and oophorectomy, following which a histological diagnosis of signet ring cell carcinoma was made.
  • Immunohistochemical analysis revealed positive expression of cytokeratin 7 and 20, and mucin core protein 2 (MUC2), compatible with appendiceal cancer and Kruckenberg metastases.
  • When a patient is found to have disseminated pelvic signet ring cell carcinoma of unknown origin, the appendix should be considered as a possible primary site.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: Patients with liver metastases not qualifying for surgery were treated with single session radiosurgery (24 Gy) using robotic image-guided real-time tumor tracking.
  • For inclusion into the radiosurgery treatment protocol, tumor volumes had to be smaller than 80cc.
  • Metastases (n=27) originated from: colon (12), rectum (2), pancreas (2), lung (1), bladder (2), malignant melanoma (1), stomach (1), cholangiocellular carcinoma (2), breast (1), ovary (1), appendix (1) and endometrium (1).
  • Median tumor volume was 21cc (range 2.2-79.3).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Robotic radiosurgery with image-guided real-time tumor tracking of liver metastases is a new and promising treatment approach for pts not eligible for surgical resection and might enhance the possibilities of multidisciplinary oncological treatment concepts.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • : e16540 Background: Pseudomyxoma peritonei occurs mostly in conjunction with the type of intestinal mucinous borderline tumour and is characterized by building up a lot of mucus pour of cells.
  • The most common tumor is the pseudomyxoma peritoneii with mucinous borderline tumours of the ovaries or with mucinous tumours of the appendix, normally without showing a rupture of the ovarian tumour pre- or intraoperatively.
  • The diagnosis of pseudomyxoma peritonei is mainly difficult and guidelines for the treatment are unknown.
  • METHODS: In the period from 1991 to 2008, 52 patients with pseudomyxoma peritonei were treated by tumour debulking and intraoperative and intraperitoneal chemotherapy with Mitoxantron (40 mg in 300 ml of NaCl over 72 hours).
  • During the tumour debulking a CUSA system was used.
  • There were the following histologies: mucinous cystadenoma of the ovary n = 29, mucinous cystadenoma of the appendix n = 10, mucinous cystadenocarcinoma n = 13.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The instillation of mitoxantron intraperitoneally and intraoperatively is an effective and safe therapy without any side effects after maximal tumour debulking of pseudomyxoma peritoneii.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Bladder metastases of appendiceal mucinous adenocarcinoma: a case presentation.
  • BACKGROUND: Appendiceal adenocarcinoma is rare with a frequency of 0.08% of all surgically removed appendices.
  • Few cases of appendiceal carcinoma infiltrating the bladder wall for spatial contiguity have been documented.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: A case is reported of a 45-years old woman with mucinous cystadenocarcinoma of the appendix with bladder metastasis.
  • Laparotomy evidenced the presence of a solid mass of the appendix (2,5 cm x 3 cm x 2 cm) extending to the loco-regional lymph nodes.
  • The subsequent pathological examination revealed a mucinous cystadenocarcinoma of the appendix with metastatic cells colonising the anterior bladder wall and several colic lymph nodes.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The rarity of the appendiceal carcinoma invading the urinary bladder and its usual involvement of nearest organs and the posterior bladder wall, led us to describe this case which demonstrates the ability of the appendiceal cancer to metastasize different regions of urinary bladder.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Epithelial appendiceal neoplasms.
  • The appendiceal malignancies usually arise within a mucocele.
  • The tumor within this structure can be minimally aggressive or of an invasive character.
  • If a low-grade appendiceal malignancy is removed intact, recurrence does not occur.
  • Sometimes a second-look surgery must be performed to determine if intraperitoneal spread of mucus and cancer cells has occurred.
  • If the diagnosis of peritoneal dissemination of an appendiceal malignancy has been established, a new treatment with curative intent is indicated.
  • In approximately 900 patients treated at the Washington Cancer Institute, the quantitative prognostic indicators for appendiceal cancer with peritoneal dissemination have been determined.
  • Patients with a complete cytoreduction and low-grade tumor have an 80% survival at 20 years; with high-grade tumors, the survival drops to approximately 45%.
  • The extent of malignancy present within the abdomen by the peritoneal cancer index has a significant impact on survival for both high-grade and low-grade disease.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] An eight-year survivor with multiple brain metastases of non-small cell lung cancer: an autopsy case.
  • BACKGROUND: Patients with brain metastases of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) have a poor prognosis, so chemotherapy and best-supportive care are typically pursued as initial treatments.
  • A histopathological examination revealed that the primary tumor was a large cell carcinoma located in the left upper lung.
  • Afterward, the patient was clinically free from lung cancer, but other cancers developed in the cecum and appendix and were surgically removed.
  • The autopsy findings indicated that the lung lesions were metastatic adenocarcinomas from the appendiceal cancer, and the patient had remained disease-free from lung cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Reconstruction of urinary tract combined with surgical management of locally advanced non-urological cancer involving the genitourinary organs.
  • INTRODUCTION: The objective of this study was to review our experience with urinary reconstruction in patients undergoing surgical management for locally advanced pelvic cancer, and to evaluate the role of urologists in these procedures.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study included a total of 37 patients undergoing some type of urinary reconstruction due to invasion of the urological organs by locally advanced pelvic cancers, including 17 rectal cancers, 9 cervical cancers, 4 sigmoid cancers, 4 retroperitoneal sarcomas, 2 ovarian cancers and 1 appendiceal cancer.
  • CONCLUSION: Our experience with extended surgical management of non-urological pelvic cancer with reconstruction of the urinary tract suggests that the urological portion of this procedure can be performed with acceptable morbidity, and that the role of the urological surgeon during this procedure is potentially important.

  • [Title] Role of appendectomy at the time of primary surgery in patients with early-stage ovarian cancer.
  • OBJECTIVE: To determine whether appendectomy is warranted in patients with apparent early-stage ovarian cancer who undergo surgery for staging and cytoreduction and to determine the complication rate associated with appendectomy in such patients.
  • METHODS: We reviewed the medical records of all patients who underwent appendectomy at the time of primary surgery for ovarian cancer at The University of Texas M. D.
  • Anderson Cancer Center between January 1992 and December 2004 and who did not meet any of the following exclusion criteria: stage III or IV ovarian cancer, appendectomy as part of a second-look procedure or secondary tumor-reductive surgery, primary appendiceal cancer, primary gastrointestinal malignancy with metastasis to the appendix, incomplete clinicopathologic data, appendicitis as a preoperative diagnosis, primary fallopian tube cancer, primary peritoneal cancer, or documented dual primary tumors.
  • Histologic diagnoses were as follows: invasive epithelial carcinoma, 35 patients (61%); tumor of low malignant potential, 15 patients (26%); malignant germ cell tumor, 4 patients (7%); and other, 3 patients (5%).
  • No patient had evidence of appendiceal involvement.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Appendectomy at the time of surgery for apparent early-stage ovarian cancer is not associated with complications but should not be routinely recommended.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • PURPOSE: The aim of this retrospective analysis was to evaluate the accuracy of 10 mm thickness single helical computed tomography (CT) examination for confirming the diagnosis of appendicitis or providing a diagnosis other than appendicitis, including underlying periappendical neoplasms.
  • We compared the postoperative diagnosis with the preoperative CT report.
  • Among nine patients in the true-negative category, five had colon cancers; and among three patients in the false-positive category, two had cancer of the cecal-appendiceal region as the underlying disease.
  • They should also be aware of the possibility of other diseases, including coincident abdominal neoplasms and underlying cecal-appendiceal cancer.

  • [Title] Primary appendiceal cancer: gynecologic manifestations and treatment options.
  • OBJECTIVE: To determine the presenting symptoms, gynecologic manifestations, and optimal intraoperative management of women with primary appendiceal cancer.
  • METHODS: A multi-institutional investigation was performed to identify female patients with primary appendiceal cancer who were treated from 1990 to present.
  • RESULTS: Forty-eight women with primary appendiceal cancer were identified from the tumor registries of participating institutions.
  • Ovarian involvement by metastatic appendiceal cancer was documented in 18 patients (38%).
  • Forty-one patients (85%) presented with advanced stage appendiceal cancer (Stage III or IV) and 19 patients (46%) received postoperative chemotherapy, most commonly with a combination of 5-FU/Leukovorin.
  • CONCLUSION: Women with primary appendiceal cancer frequently present with ovarian metastases, and initial surgical intervention is often performed by a gynecologic oncologist.
  • All patients with mucinous epithelial ovarian cancer should undergo appendectomy at the time of surgical staging.
  • The appendix should be examined intraoperatively, and if appendiceal carcinoma is identified, a right hemicolectomy and appropriate surgical staging should be considered.

  • During mobilisation of the coecum, a second retrocoecal vermiform appendix was surprisingly found.
  • Although the diagnosis of an appendix duplex is a rarity, surgeons should be aware of the possibility, especially when clinical signs and symptoms point to appendicitis, although at laparotomy the appendix looks normal.
  • A routine exploration for a second appendix is definitely not indicated because of the rarity and the increased complication rate.

  • [Transliterated title] Die Mukozele der Appendix - eine inhomogene chirurgische Krankheitsentität.
  • BACKGROUND: Mucoceles of the appendix are rare.
  • Both stenosing / obliterating processes and alterations of the epithelium (hyperplasia, mucinous cystadenoma, cystadenoma with uncertain malignant potential (UMP), mucinous cystadenocarcinoma lead to the occurrence of mucoceles.
  • Surgical resection is the curative approach for mucoceles of the appendix.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data of patients who were treated for an appendiceal mucocele between 1995 and 2009 were analysed retrospectively with regard to clinical presentation, diagnostic measures, surgical procedure and histopathological result.
  • In one patient the diagnosis of an appendiceal mucocele was stated preoperatively and in another intraoperatively.
  • The histopathological diagnoses ranged from mere epithelial hyperplasia to an adenoma with uncertain malignant potential and a mucinous cystadenocarcinoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Mucoceles of the appendix present with a wide spectrum of clinical symptoms and histopathological alterations.
  • This study emphasises that a mucocele of the appendix constitutes an important differential diagnosis in patients presenting with pathologies in their right lower abdominal quadrant.

  • [Transliterated title] Laparoskopie bei Verdacht auf akute Appendizitis. Soll die makroskopisch unauffällige Appendix entfernt werden?
  • The question whether an appendix found to be macroscopically normal at laparoscopy for suspected appendicitis should be removed remains open to debate.
  • Potential advantages of appendicectomy in all cases include early diagnosis of neoplastic lesions that cannot be detected macroscopically, diagnosis and cure of neurogenic appendicectomy, avoidance of diagnostic confusion in later episodes of abdominal pain, and prevention of appendicitis developing later in life.
  • Therefore, adopting a strategy of always removing the appendix even if it is found to be uninflamed at laparoscopy seems justified as long as it does not imply an increase in postoperative morbidity.
  • We retrospectively studied all patients undergoing laparoscopic appendicectomy in which a "normal appendix" was found and all patients undergoing diagnostic laparoscopy in our hospital during a 7-year period.
  • Our data as well as a critical review of the literature show that removal of the appendix does not increase morbidity compared to simple diagnostic laparoscopy and should always be done when performing laparoscopy for suspected acute appendicitis.

  • This paper describes variations of the appendix vermiformis, found in the course of open appendectomy.
  • Variations in the site of formation and position of appendix vermiformis were established.
  • Dominantly, appendix vermiformis is placed in the pelvic position in 57.71% of cases.
  • Variations of position of ostium appendicis vermiformis were registered as well.
  • Two types of ostium appendicis vermiformis were found: dorso-medial wall of intestinum caecum below ostium ileocaecale (35.39%), dorso-lateral medial wall of intestinum caecum (30.7%) and lower pole of intestinum caecum (64.61%).
  • Results of this research indicate very large variability of appendix vermiformis anatomy, which together with other factors (age, sex, phase in which is patient at the moment of examination) form a clinical picture of the acute appendicitis.

  • [Title] [Sonographic detection of normal appendix in children and adolescents].
  • [Transliterated title] Sonografische Darstellung der normalen Appendix im Kindes--und Jugendalter.
  • PURPOSE: The frequency of depiction of the normal appendix by real time B-mode sonography in children was evaluated in a prospective study.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: In 274 consecutive patients, age one to nineteen, without abdominal pain, depiction of the normal appendix was attempted using a 5-12 MHz linear array transducer.
  • Depiction of the normal appendix was graded as a) complete, b) partial and c) unable to be depicted.
  • In addition the position and diameter of the appendix, the examination time and the image quality were documented.
  • RESULTS: The appendix was depicted completely in 74% of all patients and partially in 10%.
  • The mean examination time to depict the normal appendix completely was 3.7 min compared to 7.6 min in partial or incompletely depicted cases.
  • In most cases in which complete depiction of the appendix was possible, the image quality was excellent.
  • CONCLUSION: Since the normal appendix in children can be reliably depicted by experienced examiners using high-resolution linear transducers, ultrasound is suitable as a reliable imaging modality for excluding acute appendicitis in children.

  • Malignant tumours of the appendix are rare.
  • Metastatic mucinous adenocarcinomas of the appendix are only reported as case histories.
  • In clinical terms, the tumours usually manifest themselves as acute appendicitis, as ruptured appendicitis, as a tumour in the right lower abdominal quadrant or as a pelvic tumour, which are generally mistaken for an ovarian tumour with the same sonographic image.
  • Advanced primary adenocarcinomas of the appendix with ovarian metastases cannot be distinguished intraoperatively from a FIGO III ovarian carcinoma.
  • The pathologist makes the definitive diagnosis.
  • Surgical therapy of the isolated primary appendiceal carcinoma consists of a hemicolectomy--an appendectomy in favourable cases--and, in the case of a metastasised carcinoma, according to the guidelines for an advanced ovarian or colon carcinoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Mucocele of the appendix.
  • BACKGROUND: Mucocele of the appendix is an infrequent event, representing 0.3%-0.7% of appendiceal pathology and 8% of appendiceal tumors.
  • It is characterized by a located or diffuse distension of the appendix with a mucus-filled lumen.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: We describe 35 cases of mucocele of the appendix diagnosed at Ramón y Cajal Hospital between January 1985 and January 2006.
  • In 4 cases, mucocele coexisted with colorectal cancer and was an incidental finding during laparotomy performed for tumor resection.
  • Ultrasonography and computed tomography (CT) scan helped to achieve a correct diagnosis.
  • Preoperative diagnosis of mucocele was achieved in 29% of the cases; 88% of patients underwent appendectomy, 2 had ileocecal resection, and 2 others underwent right hemicolectomy.

COS Scholar Universe. author profiles.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Epithelial neoplasms of the appendix.
  • CONTEXT: The appendix gives rise to an array of epithelial neoplasms showing glandular or neuroendocrine differentiation, and some tumors with elements of both cell types.
  • Although some appendiceal neoplasms resemble their counterparts in the small and large intestines (conventional adenocarcinoma and carcinoid tumor), the appendix also gives rise to relatively unique entities including mucinous neoplasms and goblet cell carcinoid tumors, which present a challenge in pathologic classification and clinical management.
  • OBJECTIVE: To review clinical and diagnostic issues for 3 pathologic types of epithelial neoplasms of the appendix:.
  • (1) adenocarcinoma, with specific focus on mucinous neoplasm;.
  • (2) goblet cell carcinoid tumor and associated adenocarcinoma; and (3) typical carcinoid tumor.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The most important issue in pathologic assessment of epithelial tumors of the appendix is to understand the clinical implications inherent in the diagnosis.

  • TNM stage of the original lung cancer was T2N2M0.
  • Endoscopic evaluation revealed no obstruction, but failed to identify mucosal abnormalities in the ileocecal region.
  • He underwent a laparotomy, and tumor of the appendix, 3 x 3 cm in diameter, adhered to the surrounding tissue, but no perforation was seen.
  • The mass was excised in combination with an ileocecal resection, followed by ileocolic anastomosis.
  • Hisotologically, the neoplastic tumor cells infiltrated the submucosa, muscularis, and serosa, but mucosa of the appendix was intact, unremarkable, with no precursor lesion.
  • The tumor was morphologically similar to the lung primary tumor.
  • He was examined at regular periodic follow-ups, but died from lung cancer 12 mo after the resection of the metastatic tumor to the appendix.

  • Gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) and mantle cell lymphoma involving the appendix are rare as individual disease entities.
  • We describe a 65-year old female who presented with extensive ileocecal mantle cell lymphoma, which extended to the appendix.
  • The appendix was involved by mantle cell lymphoma and an incidental coexistent GIST was noted in the appendiceal wall.
  • The GIST was CD117 positive but did not harbor mutations in the c-kit and PDGFR genes.
  • This is the first description of the association of a GIST with autonomic nerve differentiation coexisting with mantle cell lymphoma in the appendix.

  • [Title] Laparoscopic versus open resection for appendix carcinoid.
  • BACKGROUND: Since an increasing number of appendectomies are performed via laparoscopy, it is crucial to determine the impact of this approach on appendix carcinoid (AC) outcome.
  • Two patients died in the OP group, one due to metastatic carcinoid and the other due to metachronous colorectal cancer.
  • Prognosis of AC appears more dependent on carcinoid malignant potential or associated tumors.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Early cystoadenocarcinoma of vermiform appendix simulating submucosal tumor of the cecum.
  • A submucosal tumor with a maximum diameter of 5cm was detected in the cecum.
  • The tissue of the submucosal tumor was not obtained by endoscopic biopsy, and tumor diagnosis could not be confirmed by this method.
  • Because the tumor was too large to be a benign tumor, we were able to conclude it was malignant.
  • After receiving informed consent from the patient, laparoscopic right colectomy was performed for both diagnosis and treatment in June 2004.
  • As the swollen vermiform appendix pressed the cecum extraluminally, endoscopic examination indicated the possibility of submucosal tumor.
  • Postoperative pathological diagnosis was cystoadenocarcinoma, the tumor was extended within the mucosal layer, and no lymph node metastasis was detected.
  • Cancer cells were not present in the viscous liquid of the vermiform appendix intracavitary, either.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Combined goblet cell carcinoid and mucinous cystadenoma of the vermiform appendix.
  • Goblet cell carcinoid is an uncommon primary tumor of the vermiform appendix, characterized by dual endocrine and glandular differentiation.
  • Whether goblet cell carcinoid represents a morphological variant of appendiceal classical carcinoid or a mucin-producing adenocarcinoma is a matter of conjecture.
  • Rare cases of goblet cell carcinoid with other concomitant appendiceal epithelial neoplasms have been documented.
  • In this report, we describe a rare case of combined appendiceal goblet cell carcinoid and mucinous cystadenoma, and discuss the possible histopathogenesis of this combination.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] A case of signet ring carcinoma of the appendix: dilemmas in differential diagnosis and management.
  • PURPOSE: Signet ring carcinoma (SRC) of the appendix consists one of the most biologically virulent cancers.
  • We present the case of a patient with primary SRC complicated by the development of acute inflammation of the appendix.
  • Laparotomy confirmed a tumor mass which appeared to originate from the appendix.
  • The appendix was notably thickened with an ulcerated wall containing sinus tracts, chronic inflammation, and scarring.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Appendiceal SRC is a rare entity, which may sometimes be confused with other pathologies providing difficulties in differential diagnosis, having an impact on therapeutic decisions and affecting prognosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Villous mucinous cystadenoma of the appendix in a postmenopausal woman.
  • Instead, a cystadenoma of the appendix was discovered during laparoscopy.
  • During diagnostic laparoscopy, the cystic lesion was found to be a distended appendix.
  • Subsequent histological analysis revealed a villous mucinous cystadenoma of the appendix with low-grade intraepithelial neoplasia.
  • CONCLUSION: Gynecologists should routinely consider this disease in the differential diagnosis of right lower dumbbell abdominal cysts.
  • Eleven percent to 20% of mucoceles are caused by mucinous cystadenocarcinomas, which carry the risk of peritoneal tumor implantation caused by rupture or laparoscopic resection.

  • [Title] Surgical cytoreduction and intraperitoneal chemotherapy for peritoneal carcinomatosis arising from the appendix.
  • BACKGROUND: Peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC) originating in the appendix is a rare disease for which the long-term prognosis is poor.
  • Treatment consisted of complete surgical cytoreduction of the tumour followed by intraperitoneal chemotherapy.
  • We used Ronnett's classification for tumour grading (disseminated peritoneal adenomucinosis = grade 0, peritoneal mucinous carcinomatosis with intermediate features = grade 1 and peritoneal mucinous carcinomatosis = grade 2).

  • [Title] Carcinoid tumour of the appendix in children: a case report.
  • Carcinoids are the most common tumours of the appendix.
  • The clinical presentation of the appendiceal carcinoids is similar to that of acute appendicitis, although in many cases the tumour is diagnosed incidentally during an operation.
  • The diagnosis should be confirmed histologically.
  • We report a case of a carcinoid tumour in the tip of the appendix of a thirteen year old girl which was diagnosed intraoperatively.

  • [Title] Application of light microscopical and ultrastructural immunohistochemistry in the study of goblet cell carcinoid in the appendix.
  • BACKGROUND: Goblet cell carcinoids appear less frequently in the appendix than do other carcinoids.
  • In the presented work a case with a goblet cell carcinoid of the appendix is described.
  • METHODS: Routine histological and histochemical methods were employed, with a combination of histochemistry and immunohistochemistry on one section and light and electron microscopical immunohistochemisty on paraffin-embedded material, were applied to identify the type of the carcinoid and to reveal the fine structure of cell types in the tumour nests of the appendix.
  • RESULTS: During the biopsy of a patient who had undergone appendectomy, an infiltration with clusters of goblet cells in the submucosa of the appendix was found.
  • The ultrastructural immunohistochemistry showed that chromogranin A-positive cells had discoid and pleomorphic granules and were located in tumour nests or as single cells in the appendiceal wall.
  • CONCLUSION: The combined histochemical and immunohistochemical procedure and the ultrastructural immunohistochemistry on archival material could contribute in clarifying the diagnosis of goblet cell carcinoid.

  • [Title] Carcinoid tumor of the appendix: a consecutive series from 1237 appendectomies.
  • AIM: To report the experience of the CHU Sart Tilman, University of Liege, Belgium, in the management of appendiceal carinoid tumor.
  • RESULTS: Among the 1237 appendectomies, 5 appendiceal carcinoid tumors were identified (0.4%) in 4 male and 1 female patients, with a mean age of 29.2 years (range: 6-82 years).
  • All tumors were located at the tip of the appendix with a mean diameter of 0.6 cm (range: 0.3-1.0 cm).
  • CONCLUSION: Appendiceal carcinoid tumor most often presents as appendicitis.
  • In most cases, it is found incidentally during appendectomies and its diagnosis is rarely suspected before histological examination.
  • Appendiceal carcinoid tumor can be managed by simple appendectomy and resection of the mesoappendix, if its size is <or=1 cm.

  • [Title] Value of routine histopathologic examination of three common surgical specimens: appendix, gallbladder, and hemorrhoid.
  • BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to assess the need for a routine histopathologic examination of three common surgical specimens (appendix, gallbladder, hemorrhoid) and its impact on the further management of the patients.
  • The reports were excluded if patients had a clinical diagnosis or suspicion of malignancy.
  • RESULTS: Of 4545 appendectomy specimens, 44 (0.97%) revealed incidental unexpected pathological diagnoses, including one adenocarcinoma and one primary appendiceal lymphoma.
  • About one-fifth of such unexpected appendiceal findings had an impact on postoperative treatment.
  • Gallbladder cancer (GBC) was detected in 24 specimens (0.56%).
  • A clinical diagnosis of empyema and patient's age over 60 years were two significant risk factors for an unexpected GBC [odds ratio (OR) 11.0, 95% confidence interval (CI) 4.2-29.2 and OR 6.2, 95% CI 2.1-18.2, respectively].
  • CONCLUSIONS: The routine histopathology examination of the appendix and gallbladder, particularly in cases of empyema and patient's age over 60 years, is of value for identifying unsuspected conditions requiring further postoperative management.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Mucinous cystadenoma of the appendix misdiagnosed as cystic hydatid disease of the liver: a case report.
  • INTRODUCTION: Primary neoplastic lesions presenting with a mucocele of the appendix are very rare and can be divided into benign variants of mucinous adenomas or cystadenomas, mucinous tumours of uncertain malignant potential or mucinous cystadenocarcinomas.
  • The major complication of neoplastic mucinous appendiceal tumours is the development of a pseudomyxoma peritonei due to spreading of mucin-producing cells within the abdominal cavity.
  • After completing systemic albendazole therapy, an explorative laparotomy revealed a cystic tumour of the appendix.
  • Ileocaecal resection was performed and pathology reports confirmed the diagnosis of a mucinous cystadenoma of the appendix.
  • CONCLUSION: Here we present the case of a man with a mucinous cystadenoma of the appendix mimicking cystic hydatid disease.
  • We discuss the importance of re-evaluation and differential diagnostic reflections in cases of appendiceal mucocele.

  • [Title] Combined adenocarcinoid and mucinous cystadenoma of the appendix: a case report.
  • INTRODUCTION: Adenocarcinoid of the appendix is a rare malignant tumour with features of both adenocarcinoma and carcinoid, showing both epithelial and endocrine differentiation.
  • Mucinous cystadenoma is the commonest of the benign neoplasms of the appendix, with an incidence of 0.6% in appendicectomy specimens.
  • Laparoscopy revealed an adenocarcinoid of the appendix in combination with mucinous cystadenoma.
  • CONCLUSION: Adenocarcinoids account for 2% of primary appendiceal malignancies.
  • Right hemicolectomy is generally advised if any of the following features are present: tumours greater than 2 cm, involvement of resection margins, greater than 2 mitoses/10 high-power fields on histology, extension of tumour beyond serosa.

  • [Title] Primary epithelial tumours of the appendix in a black population: a review of cases.
  • AIM: To determine the prevalence, histologic types and clinical features of primary epithelial tumours of the vermiform appendix in a predominantly black population.
  • METHODS: All cases of primary tumours of the appendix identified by review of the histopathology records at the University of the West Indies between January 1987 and June 2007 were selected.
  • A clinical diagnosis of acute appendicitis was the most common reason for appendectomy (57.1%) and was histologically confirmed in 75% (18 of 24) of cases.
  • CONCLUSION: Appendiceal epithelial tumours are rare in our experience, and are represented principally by carcinoid tumours and adenomas.

  • [Title] Mucocele of the appendix - a diagnostic dilemma: a case report.
  • INTRODUCTION: Mucocele of the appendix secondary to mucinous cystadenoma is a rare clinical finding.
  • In spite of extensive preoperative investigations, the diagnosis was only made at the time of surgery.
  • CONCLUSION: In women presenting with a right iliac fossa mass and clinical features not indicative of gynaecological pathology, an appendiceal origin should be considered in the differential diagnosis.

  • BACKGROUND: Primary adenocarcinomas of the appendix are uncommon, constituting 1% of all colorectal malignancies.
  • Appendiceal malignancies often present atypically, thus creating diagnostic challenges.
  • Although there are many pathology reports of primary cystadenocarcinoma of the appendix, only a limited number of cases have appeared in the radiological or surgical literature.
  • We present a unique case of primary cystadenocarcinoma of the appendix occurring concurrently with adenocarcinoma of the colon, and overview the clinical and therapeutic difficulties posed by this rare entity.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: A mucocele of the appendix, due to mucinous cystadenocarcinoma, was documented as an incidental perioperatory finding in a 68-year-old female.
  • At laparoscopy, a cystic appendiceal lesion was found, without perforation.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Preoperative diagnosis of an underlying malignancy in a mucocele is important for patient management, but is difficult to reach by imaging studies alone.
  • Synchronous colon cancer may occur in patients with appendiceal mucoceles.

  • There are several classifications of appendicular epithelial cancer with a wide variety of nomenclature.
  • Epithelial tumours of the appendix have been classified into four distinct types: carcinoids, mucinous adenocarcinoma (often called mucinous cystadenocarcinoma or malignant mucocele), colonic-type adenocarcinoma, and adenocarcinoids with a dual cell origin.
  • The histopathological analysis showed the presence of a well differentiated mucinous adenocarcinoma, infiltrating the full thickness of the appendix wall.

  • [Title] [Mucocele of the appendix].
  • INTRODUCTION: Mucoceles of the appendix are infrequent entities and are found in only 0.25% of all appendectomies and 8% of all appendicular tumors.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: We describe 27 cases of mucocele of the appendix treated at Donostia Hospital between January 1978 and December 2006.
  • Three patients (11.1%) underwent surgery because of a diagnosis of abdominal tumor.
  • The main reason for emergency surgery was lower right abdominal pain in 14 patients (82.2%), intestinal obstruction in one (5.8%), a diagnosis of endometriosis in one (5.8%) and a diagnosis of pyosalpinx in one (5.8%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: We recommend monitoring of all patients with mucocele of the appendix, because these masses can sometimes be associated with neoplasms in other locations and there is a risk of pseudomyxoma peritonei even after a long follow-up.

  • However, gastrointestinal endometriosis is rare and endometriosis of the appendix resulting in perforated appendicitis is even rarer.
  • We experienced a case of endometriosis of the appendix manifesting as panperitonitis caused by perforation of the appendix.
  • When perforation of the appendix was detected, appendectomy and intraperitoneal drainage were performed.
  • Pathological examination revealed endometriosis extending from the muscularis propria to the subserosa, and a diagnosis of endometriosis of the appendix was made.
  • We consider the relevant literature describing the mechanism by which endometriosis of the appendix occurs, and the association between endometriosis of the appendix and acute appendicitis.

  • BACKGROUND: Appendiceal neoplasms, first described in 1882, are still rare, with pre-operative diagnosis invariably difficult.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective histopathological review of all appendicectomy specimens was completed between April 1994 and December 2003 to identify patients diagnosed with malignant neoplasms.
  • A literature search of the PubMed database was then performed using the medical search headings; appendix, tumour, neoplasm and malignancy.
  • Other appendiceal pathologies were identified after appendicectomies, hemicolectomy and oophorectomy.
  • CONCLUSIONS: From our own experience and a subsequent review of the literature, we recommend right hemicolectomy as the treatment of choice for all malignant appendiceal neoplasms, except for small CCT less than 2 cm in diameter at the tip of the appendix, with a low proliferative index, without angiolymphatic or mesoappendiceal extension.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] VEGF expression predicts survival in patients with peritoneal surface metastases from mucinous adenocarcinoma of the appendix and colon.
  • BACKGROUND: High levels of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in ovarian cancer metastases are associated with a worse prognosis in patients treated with chemotherapy.
  • VEGF-directed therapy improves survival for those with metastatic colorectal cancer.
  • Patients with mucinous adenocarcinomas metastatic to the peritoneal surfaces can be treated with cytoreductive surgery, and both tumor grade and cytoreduction status are prognostic.
  • We hypothesized that angiogenic indices may be prognostic in patients undergoing cytoreductive surgery for mucinous adenocarcinoma of the appendix and colon.
  • RESULTS: A total of 26 males and 9 females, with a mean age of 50 years, underwent cytoreductive surgery and IPHP for mucinous adenocarcinoma of appendiceal (n = 32) or colonic (n = 3) origin.
  • CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that markers of tumor angiogenesis may predict survival in patients with peritoneal surface metastases from mucinous adenocarcinoma.

  • Carcinoid syndrome is rare in appendiceal carcinoid.
  • Tumor size greater than 2 cm is the most important parameter for prognosis.
  • Most patients are cured by appendectomy (appendiceal tumors < or = 2 cm), tumors with a diameter > 2 cm should be managed by right hemicolectomy.
