Abstract

While appendiceal intussusception is an uncommon pathological condition, mucinous cystadenoma of the appendix is a particularly rare entity. We report a case of appendiceal intussusception induced by a mucinous cystadenoma presenting as acute appendicitis. A 37-year-old woman was admitted with a one-day history of acute onset, right lower abdominal pain. Computed tomography showed swelling of the appendix, a pathological mass in the ileocolic region and oedematous pericolonic fat stranding.
