A Case of Appendiceal Mucocele

Abstract

The appendiceal mucocele is a rare disease and very difficult to get the diagnosis preoperatively because of the rartity of classical symptoms. With progress in diagnostic procedures such as colonofiberscopy, preoperative diagnosis of appendiceal mucocele has become possible. We experienced a case of appendiceal mucocele in 50 years old male who was admitted due to vague RLQ discomfort, and was diagnosed by colonofiberscopy and surgical specimen obtained by right hemicolectomy. So we present this case with a review of literatures.
