  • [Title] Recurrent pneumonia due to an appendiceal mucinous cystadenocarcinoma: a rare presentation of a rare malignancy.
  • Mucinous cystadenocarcinoma of the appendix is a rare malignancy.
  • This is a report of a 74-year-old man who presented with recurrent pneumonia which turned out to be a postobstructive pneumonia complicating a large mucinous cystadenocarcinoma of the appendix with massive retroperitoneal and intrathoracic extension.
  • Mucinous cystadenocarcinoma of the appendix is a low-grade malignancy characterized by expansive growth due to progressive accumulation of mucinous fluid produced by the cancer cells.
  • The unusual retroperitoneal location of appendix in this patient probably allowed the tumor to expand massively in the retroperitoneal space and the thoracic cavity.
  • The value of (18)F-FDG PET in the diagnosis of mucinous cystadenocarcinoma of the appendix has not been determined yet, but it might be promising.
  • To the knowledge of the authors, this is the first report of an appendiceal mucinous cystadenocarcinoma with expansion into the thoracic cavity presenting with recurrent pneumonia.

  • [Title] [Appendiceal mucinous cystadenoma].
  • [Transliterated title] Mucinøst cystadenom i appendix.
  • BACKGROUND: Appendiceal neoplasms are rare.
  • An appendiceal mucinous neoplasia is sometimes diagnosed during a laparotomy performed on another indication.
  • The appendectomy specimen revealed a mucinous cystadenoma with a diverticulum in the appendix.
  • RESULTS AND INTERPRETATION: Appendiceal tumours account for less than 0.4% of neoplasias in the gastrointestinal tract and are found in less than 1% of appendectomies.
  • Mucinous lesions ("mucocele") are classified as mucosal hyperplasia, mucinous cystadenoma, or mucinous cystadenocarcinoma.
  • A radically removed appendix is curative in most cases of mucinous cystadenoma, whereas right hemicolectomy should be considered for patients with malignant mucinous lesions of the appendix.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Bladder Cancer.

  • [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.
  • Histopathology of the transurethral bladder resection revealed a bladder adenocarcinoma [6 cm (at the maximum diameter) x 2,5 cm; approximate weight: 10 gr] with focal mucinous aspects penetrating the muscle and perivisceral fat.
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • It had complex papillae, some of which were supported by delicate fibrovascular stroma, lined by simple to slightly stratified columnar neoplastic epithelial cells with intracellular mucin and an abundance of intracystic extracellular mucin, coexisting with a low-grade ordinary IDC.
  • Based on pathological studies and a literature review, it is suggested that mammary MCA arises from mucinous metaplasia and macrocystic transformation of ordinary breast carcinoma.

  • 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.
  • Degenerated adenomatous polyp of the ascending colon and mucinous adenocarcinoma of the sigmoid colon invading the parietal peritoneum of the uterine and vagina was diagnosed.
  • 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.

  • [Title] Appendiceal mucocele. a retrospective analysis of 19 cases.
  • BACKGROUND: Appendiceal mucocele is an infrequent well-recognized entity that can present in a variety of clinical syndromes or can be asymptomatic and discovered incidentally.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Nineteen patients with a diagnosis of primary appendiceal mucocele treated in our institution between January 1, 1987 and December 31, 2006 were included in this retrospective analysis.
  • RESULTS: The histological examination of the specimens revealed simple and hyperplastic appendiceal mucocele in nine cases (47%), mucinous appendiceal cystadenoma in eight cases (42%), and mucinous appendiceal cystadenocarcinoma in two cases (11%).
  • Thirteen patients (68%) underwent appendectomy, five patients (26%) right colectomy, and two patients (6%) underwent right colectomy for invasive appendiceal cystadenocarcinoma and at the same time right nephrectomy and sigmoidectomy, respectively, for concomitant malignancy.
  • CONCLUSION: Mucocele of the appendix may be related to a benign or malignant appendiceal process, leading to individualized diagnosis and treatment.

  • [Title] Intussusception of the appendix by mucinous cystadenoma. Report of a case with an unusual clinical presentation.
  • Appendiceal mucocele is a very rare clinical condition.
  • Associated ascites and an ovarian mass could suggest synchronous ovarian cystadenocarcinoma with pseudomyxoma peritonei.
  • We describe the case of a 36-year-old female with a mucinous cystadenoma of the appendix causing intussusception, diagnosed by CT but not by US scan, since the associated anomalous fixation of the caecum was misleading in defining the precise anatomical site.
  • Although the CT findings were accurate, the synchronous presence of an ovarian cyst and ascites did not allow us to rule out preoperatively a concurrent cystadenocarcinoma of the ovary with pseudomyxoma peritonei.
  • Treatment of associated ovarian cystadenocarcinoma and pseudomyxoma peritonei includes right colectomy, bilateral ovariectomy and omentectomy.
  • Although a precise preoperative diagnosis of mucocele associated with intussusception of the appendix has been reported as possible, concomitant ascites and ovarian masses, as in the present case, could mimic pseudomyxoma peritonei from concurrent ovarian cystadenocarcinoma.

  • [Title] Primary ovarian mucinous tumors with signet ring cells: report of 3 cases with discussion of so-called primary Krukenberg tumor.
  • The distinction between a primary ovarian mucinous carcinoma or even a borderline mucinous tumor and a metastatic mucinous carcinoma may be difficult.
  • One of the most important morphologic features suggesting a metastatic mucinous carcinoma in the ovary is the presence of signet ring cells; these are considered rare in primary ovarian mucinous tumors.
  • In this study, we report 3 primary ovarian mucinous tumors with a component of signet ring cells.
  • In one case, the neoplasm had the architecture of a mucinous adenofibroma but had frankly malignant cells lining glands and forming solid aggregates of cells.
  • The third was mostly a mucinous cystadenoma.
  • Features favoring a primary rather than a metastatic neoplasm are unilateral tumor, low stage, background of adenofibroma or cystadenoma, associated endometriosis in 1 case and an absence of features which are characteristic of secondary mucinous carcinomas in the ovary, such as surface tumor deposits, a nodular growth pattern, and lymphovascular permeation.
  • Immunohistochemistry is of limited value because of overlapping immunophenotype between a primary ovarian mucinous tumor and a metastasis from the stomach, pancreas, biliary tree, appendix, or colorectum, the most likely primary sites for a secondary exhibiting similar features.
  • Our study illustrates that signet ring cells occur rarely in a primary ovarian mucinous tumor; even when conspicuous the features differ from those of the usual Krukenberg tumor.

  • [Title] Appendiceal mucocoeles and pseudomyxoma peritonei.
  • Mucocoele of the appendix occurs when obstruction of the appendiceal lumen results in mucus accumulation and consequent abnormal dilatation.
  • The most important aetiology, from a surgical perspective, is either mucinous cystadenoma or cystadenocarcinoma.
  • In the latter, a spontaneous or iatrogenic rupture of the mucocoele can lead to mucinous intraperitoneal ascites, a syndrome known as pseudomyxoma peritonei.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Appendicitis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Only 4.0% of the appendectomy specimens contained other appendiceal pathologies.
  • Appendiceal diverticulitis was the most common inflammatory pathology, contributing to 2.7% of all appendectomies, followed by granulomatous appendicitis.
  • In this series there were eight carcinoid tumours, three adenocarcinomas, two mucinous cystadenomas; tubular adenoma, metastatic deposition, mucinous cystadenocarcinoma and pseudomyxoma peritonei each occurred in one patient only.
  • Long-term follow-up should be offered to patients with granulomatous appendicitis and neoplastic appendiceal diseases.
