Abstract

A79 -year-old woman underwent colonoscopic examination for positive occult blood. Aneoplastic lesion was seen in the orifice of the vermiform appendix. She was referred to our hospital and underwent colonoscopic examination again. The biopsy revealed poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma or mixed adenoneuroendocrine carcinoma(MANEC), and she was diagnosed with carcinoma of the appendix. She was treated by laparoscopic ileocecal resection with lymph node dissection (D3). Histopathological examination revealed goblet cell carcinoid(GCC)of the appendix with serosal invasion. No metastasis was detected in the dissected lymph nodes. This patient has been followed-up for 6 months after surgery and no recurrences have been detected.
