Abstract
Mucocele of the appendix is a descriptive term of a distended, mucus-filled appendix caused by various conditions, both benign and malignant. Computed tomography is the imaging modality of choice. Correct pre-operative diagnosis is important because of the possibility of peroperative rupture and subsequent development of pseudomyxoma peritonei. It is the task of the radiologist to alert the clinician and surgeon to the presence of this entity, the potential associated complications and possible signs of malignancy.
