A benign epithelial neoplasm that may be diffuse or focal (with small polyps), often associated with dilation of the appendix, mucin dissection into the wall and release of mucin into the peritoneum (”pseudomyxoma peritonei”).

Pathology
Dilation of appendix with a single layer of neoplastic epithelium with low-grade dysplasia, undulating morphology, villous or tubulovillous architecture, or serrated appearance.
